Want to find out more about us?
Micronova is part of OtaNano - Finland's national research infrastructure for micro- and nanotechnology, jointly run by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Aalto University. Research in Micronova focuses on micro and nanotechnology, material and device physics, and optics.
Micronova is an open research environment and we welcome companies to use the facilities and the combined expertise of Aalto and VTT in the area of micro and nanotechnology. We can offer dedicated laboratories and office space.
As a National Research Infrastructure Micronova provides open access to the cleanrooms to all. Scientists from the University of Helsinki, University of Turku and University of Jyväskylä have used our facilities, as have those from several companies.

The research of the Optics and Photonics group covers a range of topics of modern optics and photonics, encompassing various aspects of light-matter interaction, optical coherence and polarization, development of methods to manipulate light with nano- and micro-structures, design and construction of novel light sources, optical metamaterials and optical imaging.
We have a major effort on experimental low-temperature physics, but we also carry out computational and theoretical work down to fundamental quantum mechanics.
We investigate mesoscopic physics and its sensor applications. The main focus is on charge transport and thermal properties of metallic, superconducting and hybrid nanostructures.
