Background and activities
Since 2003 Lindgren is Professor in Physics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Applied Optics group/Biophysics group). The current research at NTNU is focused on laser based spectroscopy, time-resolved optical spectroscopies and related spectroscopic imaging techniques. Development of spectroscopic and imaging techniques are applied in biomedical applications and to elucidate biophysical processes. Spectroscopy is used to understand biomolecular and hybrid organic-inorganic nanomaterial systems.
