Magnus Jonsson, Vice Chair

Assistant professor in Organic electronics at Linköping University

Membership Period 2015–2020

We explore nanooptical and organic photonic phenomena and their use in novel applications, such as new types of biosensing methods. Focus is on metal nanostructures, which interacts strongly with light through charge oscillations known as plasmons. Other research interests include developing new nanofabrication techniques, nanofluidics and surface chemistry for sensing applications.

I am the Academy's Vice Chair 2018–2019.

“I see the Young Academy of Sweden as the ideal platform for both discussions about and for influencing the future of research. The wide range of different researchers the Academy represent on the same time provide a stimulating environment for interesting conversations and a breeding ground for interdisciplinary collaborations.”
