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.

Magneettinen monopoli

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.

Design for Government 2019 Final Show

Interested in new and proactive ways of policy-making and public service-provision? What happens when multidisciplinary student teams take on policy design challenges? The 2019 Spring Final Show of the Design for Government course will showcase some inspiring examples! Highly-committed and talented student teams will present their research and proposals developed during the 14-week course addressing challenging project briefs commissioned from within the Finnish government.
Sustainability in Filmmaking
Lectures and seminars

SUFI Sustainability in Filmmaking seminar

What is the environmental burden of film productions? Why is it important to take action on the matter (in Finland)? How big is the carbon footprint of a film production? What does "sustainable production" mean?
