2 postdoctoral scholarships in Organic Photonics and Nanooptics at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics, Linkoping University


The Laboratory of Organic Electronics (LOE) at Linkoping University is renowned for its world-leading research on electronic and optical devices based on organic and hybrid materials, with application areas including displays, bioelectronics, and energy conversion. Currently, there are about 100 researchers at LOE (professors, senior and junior scientists, and PhD students), see for details.

 The Organic Photonics and Nanooptics group at LOE focuses on the development and studies of novel nanooptical materials and devices, including plasmonic metasurfaces and hybrid organic and inorganic devices. As part of the Wallenberg Wood Science Centre (, the group is also expanding its activities on cellulose-based photonics and devices. Prime application areas of the group are novel types of displays, energy conversion concepts, and sensors. For details about the group and recent publications, please see or

 The Organic Photonics and Nanooptics group now welcomes applications for 2 new postdoc scholars, focusing on (1) nanooptics for sustainable fuels and (2) cellulose-based (nano) optics, respectively. While the details will differ, both projects will involve materials processing and device fabrication in cleanroom environment, as well as various types of characterisation and measurements. The studies may also involve optical modelling (e.g. FDTD simulations).
