Magnus T. Borgströms's research group focuses on the epitaxial growth, processing and characterisation of nanostructured materials with the aim to understand and control their synthesis for applications in photovoltaics, energy-saving devices such as LEDs, and artificially engineered biological media. Specific research topics include:

  • fundamental studies of the mechanisms of epitaxial growth of III-V and III-N materials, including nanowires.
  • evaluation of the electro-optical material properties of nanostructures.
  • impurity doping of semiconductor nanowires.
  • processing for synthesis of nanostructures with controlled dispersion and geometry.
  • interaction between nanowires and biological media.

Magnus is responsible for a course in the third year of the Engineering Nanosciences program at the Faculty of Engineering, as well as a graduate course on metal-organic vapour-phase epitaxy.

Magnus is also the coordinator for the nanoenergy research area at NanoLund. He came to Lund in 2007 from Philips Research Laboratories in Eindhoven, Holland, where he held a Marie-Curie postdoctoral fellowship for two years, prior to which he carried out postdoctoral studies at ETH, Zürich.
