Head of Doctoral School:: Professor Jesper Møller (http://www.math.aau.dk/~jm/)

The doctoral school is a joint offering of the Department of Mathematical Sciences and the Department of Physics and Nanotechnology.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences (http://www.math.aau.dk/) focuses on areas with a particular relevance to technical and computer science applications based on fundamental, mathematical disciplines, and on specialisations of interest to physics. Three areas are particularly emphasised: applied mathematical analysis, where interest focuses on problems from both classical physics and quantum physics and the theory of partial differential equations; discrete mathematics, where emphasis is on graph and coding theory; probabilistic and statistical models and methods, with focus on stochastic networks, spatial statistics, and bio and forensic statistics. 

Research areas: 

Applied mathematical analysis 

  • Applied mathematical analysis
  • Discrete mathematics
  • Probability and statistics

The Department of Physics and Nanotechnology (http://www.physics.aau.dk/) concentrates on topics with relations to nano science and technology. Three areas are particularly emphasised: nano optics, with emphasis on linear and non-linear light scattering by nanostructures, multiple scattering leading to band gap and localization effects and instrumentation for near-field optical microscopy; nanostructures with focus on synthesis, characterization and theoretical modelling of electronic structure and optical properties of nanosized particles, wires and thin films; surface science, where the research topics and interfaces, catalysis, self assembled monolayers, and synthesis and analysis of thin bimetallic films on the nanometer scale. 

Research areas: 

  • Nano optics 
  • Electronic and optical properties of nanostructures
  • Surface and interface physics
