The Eva Olsson research division is involved in the design and tailoring of materials to enable new sustainable solutions for energy harvesting, energy storage, energy consumption, catalysis, quantum technology and the use of soft matter in applications such as coatings for controlled drug release and solar cells. The function of the materials depends on the atomic structure where individual atoms play a role and also their exact position. We are using high spatial resolution imaging, spectroscopy and in situ techniques to quantitatively study the material structure (including techniques with high spatial precision in determining the position of atoms (1 pm), high energy resolution to determine electronic structure and high spatial precision in situ for electrical, mechanical, optical and thermal manipulation) and correlate the structure to properties.
RECENT NEWS & EVENTS
July 22nd, 2019: We would like to welcome two new Post Docs to the Eva Olsson Group: Dr. Gabriel Sánchez Santolino and Dr. Shun Kondo. We are very happy to have you join!!
June 11-14, 2019: The Eva Olsson Group presented various projects at the SCANDEM 2019 meeting (70th annual meeting of the Nordic Microscopy Society). Andy gave an invited lecture, Shun gave a contributed lecture for which he won the prize for best contributed lecture, Gabriel gave a contributed lecture, and Cecilia and Jonatan gave poster presentations.
January 9th, 2019: Torben and Eva have contributed to a paper published in Applied Catalysis A, General on chemical poisoning of NOx storage catalysts. This was in collaboration with researchers from the Competence Centre for Catalysis at Chalmers and the Volvo Car Corporation. You can find the paper here.
November 7th, 2018: Jonatan, Lunjie, Ludvig and Eva, in collaboration with Thomas Kanne Nordqvist, Peter Krogstrup and Jesper Nygård of Niels Bohr Institute, have recently published a paper in Nano Energy. The article, which is about a characterization method for single nanowire solar cells, can be found here.
November 1st, 2018: We would like to welcome our new PhD student in the group: Pierre Carmona. He will be studying the dynamics of formation of cellulose films for coatings of drug delivery systems. He will perform the main part of his work in RISE with Niklas as supervisor and will use the FIB SEM in Eva group to characterize the structure of his systems.
October 30th, 2018: Lunjie, Wolfgang and Eva, in collaboration with Christoph Gammer of Erich Schmid Institute of Materials Science, Burak Ozdol and Andrew Minor of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and Thomas Nordvquist and Peter Krogstrup of Niels Bohr Institute, have recently published a research paper in Nano Letters. The article “Correlation between Electrical Transport and Nanoscale Strain in InAs/In0.6Ga0.4As Core–Shell Nanowires” can be found here.
October 26th, 2018: Andy and Eva have contributed to a paper published in Nano Letters on strong light-matter coupling in Au bipyramid - WSe2 hybrid systems. This was in collaboration with the Shegai Group in the Bionanophotonics Division of the Department of Physics here at Chalmers. You can find the paper here.
