OtaNano

Micronova

Micronova is part of OtaNano - Finland's national research infrastructure for micro- and nanotechnology. It is run jointly by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Aalto University. Our mission is to develop innovative, enabling technologies, and to apply these in practical micro- and nanosystems. Research at Micronova focuses on micro and nanotechnology, material and device physics, and optics.

Optics and Photonics

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.

Quantum Computing and Devices (QCD)

We have a major effort on experimental low-temperature physics, but we also carry out computational and theoretical work down to fundamental quantum mechanics.

Pico - Quantum Phenomena and Devices

We investigate mesoscopic physics and its sensor applications. The main focus is on charge transport and thermal properties of metallic, superconducting and hybrid nanostructures.

Networking

Wellbeing Desk EDI-session: LGBTQ+ in Aalto

Welcome to a monthly session for Aalto personnel to discuss equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) at Aalto University! In the sessions we discuss in small groups about our experiences of EDI at work context. The topic of the 15.9.2022 session is LGBTQ+ at Aalto and the discussion is facilitated by Kasper Kivistö, the chair of Trasek ry and board members of GAYY student association. The EDI sessions are part of Wellbeing Desk services, offering low-threshold services to support the wellbeing of Aalto personnel.
