There isn’t much on Earth but you can find it just about everywhere else — how a type of helium might tell us how everything we know got its start.
It’s not only changing the way we process data, AI changing how we carry out research, period.
Artists have for long been quick to experiment, use and misuse new technologies--but does AI mean the end of human-made art?
Quantum Technology studies begin at Aalto – Pioneering physics student Artturi Jalli is already programming the IBM quantum computer
The unique Quantum Technology major takes you to the forefront of the ongoing quantum revolution in computation, communication, sensing, and simulation.
Join us Wednesdays in January for our interview series on distant galaxies, the beginnings of the universe and new space
First confirmation of a Wigner crystal in graphene paves the way for a new kind of quantum computing
Using graphene, exotic arrangements of electrons can be studied, with possible applications including quantum computing.

Quantum physics and technology research receives billion-euro funding from the EU — Aalto University involved in three projects
Aalto University research groups will study and develop technology for quantum communication, ultra-sensitive magnetic sensors based on quantum optics, and photon-emitting quantum chips. The Quantum Flagship launched by the European Union will provide funding for ten years and for over 5000 researchers with one billion euros. The flagship will consolidate the best quantum physics research in Europe and transfer quantum technology from the lab to the market.
New multi-million euro projects design magnetic tweezers to explore interaction and swarming dynamics of moving particles
Professor Jaakko Timonen's five-year research projects will design a new kind of magnetic tweezers with which to control and study the interaction of moving active particles. The tweezers could be used in microbiological research, for example, to separate and differentiate between various types of cells.
