Thematic research areas

There are several thematic research areas at KTH.

Materials research themes

Broadly materials research at KTH can be classified into the following clusters of activities:

  • Polymer materials - bio-based, synthetic and hybrids
  • Emerging materials - quantum materials, plasmonics, magnonics, HT superconductors
  • Materials for energy applications - storage, transmission, photovoltaics, catalysis
  • Sustainable materials - recycling, purification, design for circularity
  • Engineering materials - 3D printing, construction, alloys, infrastructure
  • Materials for information and communication technologies - photonics, thin films, silicon based technologies, magnetic materials
