The department's research covers microsystems like micro lasers, micro electronics, integrated optoelectronics and waveguides. Our newest field of research is Nanotechnology, where the dimensions are at atomic levels.

Our research also covers wireless technology in communication, navigation, radar and remote sensing. 

With today's demands on information quantity, transmission and storage must be made as effective as possible. Signal- and image processing, speech technology, music technology and communication are also areas of our research.

Research Groups


Anechoic Chamber (image) -Photo: Erik Wessel-BergThe acoustics group studies the generation, propagation and reception of sound waves, as well as transducers and related signal processing, in a wide range of scenarios: sound for the communication between humans; the influence of sound on humans and animals; and technical uses such as remote sensing and underwater communication networks.

Circuit and Radio Systems

The  Circuit and Radio Systems group performs research on design, modeling, verification, and testing of individual electronic circuits and larger systems. These can be used, e.g., for radio communication, for embedded control of automotive and household equipment, for health and well-being, and for microprocessors and general computing systems. 

Nanoelectronics and Photonics

Graphene (image) -Credit: CrayoNano Focus is on developing novel materials and techniques with improved functionality and reduced energy consumption.
The research group develops nanoscale materials with tuneable properties, photonic sensors, and optical characterization techniques for biomedical and information technology applications.
The group performs research on oxide electronics, semiconductor nanowires, periodic structures, photonic (bio)sensors, biomedical optics, and terahertz spectroscopy.

Signal Processing

Medical Technology (image)Signal processing, statistical signal theory, information and communication theory are the main academic topics that unite the activities within the group.


Smart Wireless Systems
