Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering

Signal of quality

At the Opens external link in new windowAalto University School of Electrical Engineering, science and engineering meet society. Our portfolio covers fields from natural sciences to engineering and information sciences. In parallel with basic research, we develop ideas and technologies further into innovations and services. We are experts in systems science, developing integrated solutions from care of the elderly to space robotics.

The Electron Physics Group at the Department of Electronics and Nanoengineering, researching on semiconductor materials and device physics, contributes to the Hymet project.

The Electron Physics group is led by Associate Professor Hele Savin. Research interests cover the whole scientific spectrum from fundamental physical phenomena to the search for cutting-edge applications in collaboration with leading industries. The current research activities include silicon-based photovoltaics and photodetectors, advanced characterization and nanofabrication techniques as well defect engineering in silicon. Black silicon for application in photovoltaics and imaging detectors and atomic layer deposition for semiconductor surface passivation, are the primary contributions to the Hymet project.

In addition to extensive facilities at Micronova Nanofabrication Centre (providing the largest cleanroom facilities in the Nordic countries), we use global research infrastructures in collaboration with our university and industry partners.
