Short CV and Research

Professor Lars Kloo, born 1961. Head of Applied Physical Chemistry, KTH. Docent 1994 and Doctor of Philosophy1990 in Inorganic Chemistry from Lund Univ. About 180 scientific, peer-reviewed papers on mainly ionic liquids, clusters, low-dimensional materials and dye-sensitized solar cells ranging from the basic fundamentals to application. Teaches quantum chemistry and fundamental spectroscopy at undergraduate level. Received the Göran Gustafsson Prize in Chemistry in 2002.


I am responsible for the undergraduate course in Molecular Structure (KD1060 / KD1070), the KTH supervisor course (LH207V), and participle in various other courses at undergraduate and graduate level involving inorganic chemistry, inorganic materials energy, and electrochemical energy devices etc.
