The department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology (IFM) hereby presents its 45th consecutive progress report since the start in 1970. The report contains a description of activities in research and education within the department and in collaborations and it is intended as a source of information for colleagues and other interested readers.
IFM IS ORGANIZED IN FIVE SCIENTIFIC AREAS
- Applied Physics
- Material Physics
- Theory and Modelling
A large part of the research within these divisions is made possible by generous grants from funding agencies like The Swedish Research Council (VR), The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF), The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, VINNOVA, FORMAS, and also different international and European research programs.
During the year 2015, 31 doctorial and 15 licentiate theses were presented. More than 230 undergraduate courses were offered in programs for Masters of Science in Engineering, for Master of Science, for Bachelor of Science in Engineering, and for teacher training programs.
I also want to take this opportunity to thank all staff, teachers, researchers and students for their dedication and hard work for the department and for the university. This report reflects their love and ambitions for the academic world.
Finally, I am most grateful for the warm welcome I have received at IFM.
