Molecular biophysics

The Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics (LMB) at Uppsala University promotes research and discoveries at the frontiers of photon science by exploring and exploiting photon-material interactions on short time scales, at high photon frequencies, and in extremely strong photon fields. LMB produced the scientific case in imaging that assured funding for the construction of the first X-ray free-electron lasers in the US (the LCLS) and Europe (the European XFEL). We also study photosynthesis and photosynthetic carbon fixation in aquatic microorganisms, primarily from the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans.
