Measurement technology and nanophysics offered at University of Bergen is an important part of our everyday life, and the limits of what can be measured are increasingly stretched by utilizing various chemical and physical characteristics of materials, from nano to macroscopic scale, for the development of renewable energy sources, sensors and instruments.


Key facts

New and improved measurement technology for micro and nanoscale characterisation also plays a very important role for development of renewable energy technology.

A specialization in measurement technology requires a good knowledge of the physics behind the different measuring principles, as well as insight into the process to be measured. New methods and materials make it possible to develop sensors where one can draw more information out from each individual measurement. The master program focuses on optical and electromagnetic measurement principles. Energy technology and measurement systems for renewable energy are being developed, such as solar cells, rain cells and other types of renewable energy sources. In addition, sensors and imaging systems for characterization of particles and structures, from microscopic to nanoscopic level are being developed.

The research work methods, which is an important part of the education, ranges from theory and modeling to experiment and development of prototypes. The research work is often carried out in close cooperation with industry and research establishments like Christian Michelsen Research AS.

Measurement technology and nanophysics master program offered at University of Bergen gives a broad foundation and good understanding of current issues in measurement technology. In the master's thesis work the analyzed measurements and results are considered in light of the hypothesis being tested.
