Linköping University's Advanced Functional Materials (AFM) research area, led by Professor Igor Abrikosov, focuses on materials science with the aim of accelerating material development for commercial applications and future research. Materials play a pivotal role in human history and development, from the stone age to modern technology. AFM researchers aim to transition from a trial-and-error approach to a knowledge-based design, shortening material development from twenty years to just a few, and enabling the creation of materials on demand. Around 150 researchers across various fields are working on applied and fundamental research within AFM, using tools like AI and theoretical simulations to explore new materials and their applications. Materials science is seen as the key to a sustainable future, enabling progress across various industries and research areas.
