Master Optoelectronics and Optical Communication University of Lund Lund The course provides a plattform both for the selection of suitable devices for various optoelectronic applications and for the development of next generation devices. To achieve this, the course will emphasize the underlying physics as well as how performance is affected by device design and materials properties.

Master Advanced Processing of Nanostructures University of Lund Lund The course will provide a deep understanding of processes related to the fabrication and characterization of nanostructures that can be used in nanoelectronics, nanophotonics and life sciences. The focus will be placed on modern materials processing techniques that are used in nanotechnology today. Examples are electron beam lithography, scanning electron microscop and etching. Practical laboratory work (in the form of a project work) in our modern clean rooms (Lund Nano Lab) aims to give practical knowledge and experience of some important technological methods used in semiconductor technology. Because a clean room environment is crucial for nanofabrication, special attention will be paid to cleanroom design, safety and practical work. The course Processing and Device Technology is a prerequisite for attending this course. Because of the practical elements of the course, the number of students is limited.

Other laserbaserad förbränningsdiagnostik University of Lund Lund Kursen syftar till att ge en grundläggande fysikalisk förståelse för laserdiagnostiska teknikers möjlighet att beröringsfritt mäta parametrar som t.ex. temperatur och ämneskoncentrationer i förbränningsprocesser. Centrala inslag i kursen är därmed växelverkan mellan strålning och materia, lasrar och deras egenskaper, optik, optisk mätteknik, molekylfysik, och förbränning. Den unika information som med laserdiagnostik erhålls experimentellt kan tillsammans med avancerad modellering leda till en detaljerad kunskap om förbränningsprocesser. Sådan förståelse är viktig för att göra dem effektivare och med lägre koncentrationer av föroreningar, vilket är viktigt med tanke på att förbränningsprocesser står för mer än 90% av världens energiförsörjning.
