Summary of Bo Monemar's activities


Bo Monemar is an emeritus professor since 2009, but still working actively in research projects, half of the time at IFM (Prof Janzéns group) and the other half at Lund University, Solid State Physics (Prof Samuelsons group). The research at IFM is mainly concerned with III-nitrides and other wide bandgap materials. Most of the work concerns optical investigations, such as transient photoluminescence  (TRPL) spectroscopy in order to understand the propagation of fast optical pulses in the materials. Another recent topic has been basic understanding of p-doping via Mg acceptors in III-nitrides. The work in Lund concerns development of nanowire-based light emitters (LEDs) for Solid State Lighting applications, employing both III-nitrides and III-V materials.

Current supervision of students

In my situation as an emeritus professor I cannot formally be responsible for PhD students. I do however have strong interactions with PhD students both at IFM and in Lund.
