Maarit Karppinen

T105 Chemistry and Materials


Pioneering new-material research for the next-generation energy and nanotechnologies, including novel functional materials for high-Tc superconductors, thermoelectrics, spintronics, fuel cells, batteries, oxygen storage, etc. Current focus on hybrid materials where inorganics are combined down to molecular-level precision with e.g. organic molecules, polymers and biomaterials. For the new material syntheses, various unique synthesis techniques are employed, including ultra-high-pressure and atomic/molecular layer deposition (ALD/MLD) techniques.
