Mats-Erik Pistol's research group uses experimental and theoretical methods to study the optical and electronic properties of nanostructures, such as nanowires and quantum dots. The experimental methods include photoluminescence and Raman scattering on individual nanostructures. The theoretical methods mainly comprise k⋅p-theory although some efforts are devoted toward performing tight-binding calculations on nanostructures. An emphasis is placed on comparing theoretical results with spectroscopic data. Mats-Erik also has an interest in improving density functional theory. Specific research topics include:
Mats-Erik also teaches introductory-level classes for the undergraduate programs Engineering Physics and Engineering Nanoscience.
At the Nanometer Structure Consortium at Lund University (nmC@LU) he coordinates the nanoelectronics/nanophotonics efforts. He did his undergraduate studies at Uppsala and Lund University where he studied mathematics, physics and biology. He obtained his PhD at Lund University.
