Become a PhD student

At our division you will have the opportunity to challenge yourself in both lab work connected to lasers and combustion and programming where image analysis and chemical simulation are key elements in our research. See our open positions or contact Per-Erik if you are interested.

Combustion Physics gives four courses for undergraduates. Click on the links below to get more information.

Molecular physics (FBR030, FYST36)

The course treats how molecules interact with electromagnetic radiation. Much emphasis is put on diatomic molecules and simpler polyatomic molecules, both theoretical and practical. Properties such as attractive forces, bounding distances, moment of inertia, molecular mass and temperature can be read from measured spectra. The course mainly covers interaction with molecules in the gas phase.
