Aalto University, Finland is a new multidisciplinary science and art community in the fields of science, economics, and art and design. The University is founded on Finnish strengths, and its goal is to develop as a unique entity to become one of the world's top universities. Aalto University's cornerstones are its strengths in education and research. At the new University, there are 20,000 basic degree and graduate students as well as a staff of 5,000 of which 350 are professors. contact information for media: Johanna Juselius Aalto University Communications tel +358 50 372 7062 email email@example.com
Nanofibrillar cellulose film to ease performing medical tests
Researchers at Aalto University have succeeded in developing a durable and affordable nanofibrillar cellulose film platform to support medical testing. New environmentally friendly, reliable nanofibrillar cellulose (NFC) ...
Electron microscopy provides atom-by-atom knowledge of doped graphene and carbon nanotubes
A thread of research pursued in a pan-European collaboration lead by Aalto University Department of Applied Physics scientists has yielded prominent results for the electron microscopy of nitrogen-doped graphene and carbon ...
Heat flow control for future nanoelectronics
Electronic devices and their components are getting smaller and smaller. Through his doctoral research at the Department of Applied Physics in Aalto University, Tomi Ruokola has examined how the heat generated by electronic ...
A good guessing method makes supercomputing more efficient
In his doctoral dissertation, Kurt Baarman, a researcher from Aalto University, developed methods for making electron density calculations more efficient. These methods can also be applied to pharmaceutical development.
Sounds of northern lights are born close to ground
For the first time, researchers at Aalto University in Finland have located where the sounds associated with the northern lights are created. The auroral sounds that have been described in folktales and by wilderness wanderers ...
Phone call, SMS or perhaps a Whatsapp message?
Smartphone users' communication habits have been studied in a doctoral thesis at Aalto University. The users' choices are affected, e.g., by the strength of the relationship with the other party and the context in which the ...
Bursty behaviour found to have similar features across complex systems
Several complex systems live in periods of short bursts of high activity followed by long uneventful intermissions. This phenomenon called burstiness can be modelled and predicted with mathematical algorithms. Research of ...
DNA tug of war
A mathematical model created by Aalto University (Finland) researcher Timo Ikonen explains for the first time how the DNA chains in our genome are translocated through nanopores that are only a couple of nanometres thick.
The most accurate million-volt measurement carried out in High Voltage Laboratory
Researchers have developed a mobile million-volt DC voltage divider, coordinated by the Finnish centre for metrology and accreditation, MIKES.
Businesses increase revenue with social media
