A new artificial material mimics quantum entangled rare earth compounds

Sometimes something unexpected happens in lab. Viliam Vaňo made a surprising discovery together with Peter Liljeroth, Jose Lado and other colleagues. They started to discuss the finding and found an answer that was something different than what they were initially aiming at.

The physicists managed to create a new ultra-thin two-layer material with quantum properties that are normally achieved using rare earth compounds. It turned into a major discovery thanks to curiosity, collaboration, and an environment that encourages exploration. The new material could provide a novel platform for quantum computing and advance research into unconventional superconductivity and quantum criticality. Learn more: https://bit.ly/3HSWphi

University campus can be a home for many wild species, even some endangered ones.
🦇
In our Otaniemi campus you can spot species like flying squirrels and bats (if you’re lucky!).
🐿️
We have been mapping our campus nature to learn more about where these species live and what are the important corridors and habitat for the wild nature. This way we can also protect the species and our biodiversity better.
🦉
We ❤️ our campus nature! Otaniemi campus area is very special with its’ endangered species and protected areas so we put together a series that introduces you to our wild wonders in the coming weeks.

You don’t have to know where you want to be in 10 years. Meet four students who struggled to find their way and turned it into an asset.

1. Afrin Hossain is doing her master’s in applied mathematics. ‘I didn’t know what to pick and maths and physics were the areas I was good at. I like the little euphoria you get when you’ve been alone in a room with a pen and a paper, and you finally get a proof.’

2. As an undergraduate in physics, Tuomas Kynkäänniemi was calibrating the sensors of the Mars rover. Currently he is developing machine learning methods called generative models for generating highly realistic images as a PhD student. ‘My path from undergraduate to now was a bit of a random walk. I hope my example shows that if you are open-minded and curious, you can get the opportunity to work on lots of very different and fascinating projects.’

3. Silja Sormunen managed to study psychology, medicine, philosophy, comparative literature and aesthetics before her master’s studies in the life science technologies program at Aalto University. The understanding of complex systems she has acquired in her master’s studies can later be applied to several different fields, such as neuroscience and social networks. ‘I think it’s wonderful that the same tools can be used for very different projects, such as immunology.’

4. Silva Robbins studies bioinformation technology and participates actively in student life. ‘Studies in medicine and a career as a doctor are not the only options for someone who wants to be involved in the development of medicine. It’s worth considering what kind of a job description you want in the future and to be open to different options.’

Looking for a new direction, or the next step on a path already chosen? Apply for our master’s programmes in just two weeks!

Irene Purasachit saw the floral industry’s waste problem firsthand – now she makes material for handbags from discarded blooms | Aalto University

A designer doesn’t belong in the lab, or does she? Irene Puraschit decided to take things into her own hands when she came face-to-face with the waste produced by the floral industry. 💐

She came to Aalto to combine her design background with materials and chemical engineering — and find real use for what would otherwise end up in the trash. Now Irene is making material for handbags and working with Bangkok’s flower market to create a workshop for the 500 vendors selling blooms each day.

What new skills would you need to solve the problem that’s been rubbing you the wrong way?

'I found out that research allows you to pursue your interests, to learn something new, to broaden your mind and to challenge yourself in new ways. The work is hard, and the standards are rigorous, but most researchers agree that their work is rewarding, so you will enjoy what you do.'

Postdoctoral researcher Ali Khosravi works with energy system modelling. His research on sustainable energy technology has gained so much visibility and citations that he is now named in the Stanford list of world’s top 2% scientists! Here are his tips for other young researchers, who want to make their research more visible:

✔️ Start by choosing the field of research. For example there's definitely need for knowledge in the fields of artificial intelligence, synthetic biology, blockchain and renewable energy. Right now the big breakthroughs come at the interfaces between these established disciplines. The next step is identifying the specific topics within your field that generate a high level of interest. This can help to attract future collaborators and in turn increase visibility and impact. International collaborations can be particularly valuable.⁣
✔️ Present research findings at conferences and, where appropriate, at international congresses. Attending such events also provides opportunities for networking and developing new collaborations.
✔️ Use social media and networks to promote your research and reach a wider audience. This can include an audience beyond your own discipline. Examples include LinkedIn, ResearchGate, Google Scholar, Academia.edu and Twitter.
