Congratulations to Emma Johansson who wins €500 in speaking contest!

Emma Johansson, graduate student at Nanostructured Materials, finished second in the biannual student speaking contest during the 12th European Ceramic Society Conference (19-23 June 2011) in Stockholm. Emma was selected as the Swedish representative and competed against 19 other European students. Her lecture was based on the results she presented in her licentiate thesis.

First Ph.D. produced in Nanostructured Materials

On 31 May 2011 Mohamed Ballem successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis "Synthesis of mesoporous silica and their use as templates for metal and metal oxide nanoparticles". Opponent was professor Lennart Bergtröm, Stockholm University. This was the first Ph.D. thesis written in the field of Nanostructured Materials at Linköping University.

2011 starts with three new group members

Dr. Fredrik Söderlind has started as assistant professor in the group. He will work on CO2 reduction by heterogeneous catalysis and synthesis of nanoparticulate catalysts.

Robert Pilemalm and Susann Sveen are new graduate students, working on cubic boron nitride as substrates for cutting tools in collaboration with Högskolan Dalarna and several companies.
