Sølve Selstø


My teaching involves primarily mathematics and physics for engineering students.

By background I'm a theoretical physicist - specializing in atomic physics.

Within my research I am interested in how microscopical objects behave - objects which are subject to the laws of quantum physics. This includes phenomena which involve the interaction between matter and light - such as when an atom is torn apart by a strong laser pulse. It also involves quantum information technology.
