Revealing the secrets of space for decades, this year marks the 50th anniversary of Aalto University’s Metsähovi Radio Observatory! 🌌⁣
⁣⁣
Metsähovi is the only astronomical radio observatory in Finland. It's a home of a 13.7-meter radio telescope that works 24/7, capturing data from outer space. 🔭 Metsähovi Radio Observatory also has several smaller radio telescopes and antennas for studying outer space and various radio-frequency phenomena. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Today, Metsähovi Radio Observatory is all about researching active galaxies, radio monitoring of the Sun, and joint observations in collaboration with international radio telescope networks. As a result of the cooperation, Metsähovi's researchers have been involved in making astronomical history: they were, for example, part of the project that took the first picture of a black hole! 💥 ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The jubilee year will feature in Aalto University’s various information channels throughout the year, and there will also be events held and a series of public lectures in the autumn. Details of these will be released during the spring🎈 ⁣

Aalto University’s Metsähovi Radio Observatory has played an important role in the development of Finnish radio astronomy.

More than 30 Aaltonians – students, researchers, leaders, and staff – have shared their stories in the Walk in my Shoes series. What do they think is important for our community? Everything from togetherness to integration, appreciation, patience, creativity, and a connection with nature.

‘We’re building a great campus in Otaniemi, but it’s not always clear how we can best use this remarkable place for students, staff members and stakeholders. If I had a magic wand, I would use one wish to enliven our sense of community,' says Gary Marquis.

‘It's not that we just integrate people from elsewhere into our system. We have to genuinely reflect about what the international community gives us and how we ourselves will change. It’s always a two-way street,’ says Laura Aalto.

‘I’d like to see more appreciation towards others. I would like us to give feedback in a constructive and respectful way. This applies to the whole community. We are all an important part of it’, says Ilkka Niemelä.

‘If someone were to walk in my shoes at the beginning of the studies, I would hope that they would not try to achieve everything right away. You can give yourself time and work through things on your own,’ says Veera Repka.

‘Väre is a kind of soulless mausoleum. But what if we relaxe a bit, because the house is made for people, after all, and it's not a huge exhibition space. Creativity should be allowed to bloom more,’ says Ville Wikström.

‘It would be great if students of all ages could join community beekeeping at Aalto University and connect with nature in a very practical way,’ says Albert Devasagayam Francis.

What do you wish for the year ahead?

Eight Aaltonians share how they cope with darkness when it reaches its peak at this time of year. How do you do it? Share your best tips in the comments! 👇

🌃 For Pirjo Hirvonen, the dark period means rest, silence, and simplification of things. ‘The starry sky is one of the most glamorous moments, and the moon is extremely beautiful.’

⛷️ Pasi Lehto thinks that darkness is largely a question of attitude. ‘For me, the solution lies in positivity. For example, exercise and outdoor activities usually help me with everything.’

🔋 Ira Matilainen tries to remember that tiredness and melancholy are normal reactions to darkness. ‘You shouldn't use all your energy to fight them. It’s a bit weird, but accepting this usually makes you feel better.’

👭 Wajeeha Munib survives the darkness by staying connected with friends and loved ones. ‘This helps me combat feelings of loneliness or isolation.’

🏵️ For Osei Afram Owusu, the darkness in Finland was initially a shock. ‘But with my roommate, we share experiences from our different cultures and countries, which is fun.’

🎶 Esa Saarinen knows how to make the darkness fold into itself magically. ‘I start singing a Beatles song like "All My Loving" out loud with the lyrics, not just humming, and miracles start to happen.’

🔆 Petri Suomala thinks that light is always stronger than darkness. ‘You don't need a lot of light for the worst darkness to go away. That's true on both a metaphorical and concrete level. The way I deal with winter darkness is by enjoying small moments of light.’

🌨️ For Nayoung Yoon, it was impossible to imagine this level of darkness in Korea. ‘The darkness has challenged me in many ways, but at the same time it has made me a more humble and mentally solid person. Maybe the darkness could be the source of Sisu spirit in Finland?’

Researchers at Aalto University and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland have managed to create a a fully wood-based "super black" material with ultra-low light reflectance. ⬛

Super black materials, as the name suggests, possess the ability to absorb an astonishing amount of light, rendering them incredibly dark. Super black coatings can have broad applications in various industries, from optical systems to solar panels and space exploration.

The wood-based material produced by Aalto/VTT researchers promises to be a sustainable, nontoxic material that is capable of absorbing an astounding 99.65% of light – in effect breaking the record for the blackest solid wood material ever reported! 🏆

What sets this innovative approach apart is that it is easier to work with compared to other super black materials. This quality opens up a world of possibilities, making it suitable for a wide range of applications beyond what was previously possible.

The research conducted by the FinnCERES Flagship team doesn't only push the boundaries of super black materials; it lays a solid foundation for further innovation in wood-based optics.

💡 Read the full story:

In the ever-evolving world of science and technology, there are certain phenomena that continue to captivate the minds of scientists, artists, and the general public alike. One such phenomenon is the enigmatic world of super black materials.

In his latest blog post, Amr looks back a few years and reflects on his decision to apply to Aalto University, and it all boils down to the community feel on campus and the possibility to explore his creativity.

’During high school, when I was applying to universities, I wanted to explore the different opportunities universities offered for their students, and freedom to creativity was an important aspect for me’, the Digital Systems and Design and Economics student thinks back.

‘At the time I was knowledgeable about Aalto University due to its prestige and high rankings in the fields I am most interested in, and decided to visit my friend who studied there at the time. During my visit I explored the campus, which truly highlighted the community feel to the university, but, what truly grabbed my attention was seeing how active and engaging all Aalto students are, particularly by exploring the many clubs and associations made by students (which reach over 200 by the way!).’

’I wondered what makes students especially active here?', Amr ponders. 'Through my experience I saw that Aalto does so much for its students, particularly pushing them to explore their creativity and get out of their comfort zone. This is what set it for me that Aalto is the place for me, as I knew that at Aalto, I can truly thrive and find myself in any means whether it's through research or student life!’

For Aalto University employees, entrepreneurial mindset means not shying away from difficult tasks and daring to try something new.

‘I see a lot of entrepreneurial attitude in Aalto employees. There’s a more permissive environment than at many larger companies,’ says Minna Tuusa, a human resources development specialist.

For her an entrepreneurial mindset involves looking for opportunities and development targets but also taking on challenges. ‘Of course, you encounter a lot of challenging situations in HR work. If I identify one of these issues, I don't let it go; I go after it.’

Spinoff Investment Manager Anu Honkalinna is a lawyer by training, but entrepreneurial mindset comes naturally to her because of her career background. Before coming to Aalto, she mentored start-ups and growth companies, founded fintech companies and ran a start-up accelerator.

‘I have a great passion for helping teams that I can see are doing good for the world. I see this as my dream job, using Aalto's great science-based solutions to save the world.’

Our planet can support food production for 10 billion people, but achieving this requires tailored adjustments in different areas. 🌾

We've put together guidelines for decision-makers to align food production systems with sustainability objectives, aiming to mitigate climate change impacts, prevent future food and economic crises, and reduce food inequality. This holds the promise of a better future for us and our planet. Perhaps this journey could begin in January – a fresh start and renewed commitment to positive change.

Congratulations Kalle Spoof and Lassi Meronen for your successful doctoral defences today 💐

Both doctoral theses are part of the Industrial doctoral school programme funded by Saab. The goal is to train at least 20 new PhD’s at Aalto by 2027.

In his doctoral thesis, Lassi Meronen focuses on how to enhance deep learning models' ability to estimate uncertainty, a key factor in ensuring reliable decision-making.

'For example, I’ve worked on automatic radar signal classification that can be used to recognise aircraft. Such a system must be good at estimating uncertainty, since overconfident and incorrect classification of an aircraft could have severe consequences,’ Meronen says.

Kalle Spoof has developed beamforming of radar systems, which can be widely utilised in radars, electronic defence systems and mobile communications.

‘I utilised delays for adjusting antenna signals, a departure from the traditional use of phase shifts. Delays enable wideband beamforming, which increases the data transfer capacity of radio receivers. The key novelty value of the research is a more efficient delay implementation within microcircuits,’ Spoof says.

Injectable microbubbles are known for their ability to serve as contrast agents when scanned via ultrasound. But with short lifespans in the blood stream and no way to control their direction, microbubbles’ utility in medical applications has been limited up until now.

One Aalto University physicist has figured out a way to extend the lifespan of microbubbles up to an hour with a proprietary protein coating. Additionally, the coating selectively attaches the bubbles to cancer cells rather than to other tissues, making the cancer cells shine bright white in the ultrasound image.

The result of this two-pronged innovation is an early cancer diagnosing technology that utilizes imaging equipment widely available throughout the world.

Hedar Al-Terke, the researcher behind the innovation, was awarded Aalto’s Department of Applied Physics’ 2023 innovation of the year. Read more about his research project, Smart Bubbles, at the link below:

This Independence Day we celebrate a nation that trusts in itself. The foundation of trust is openness within our society. Finland takes great pride in making research and data accessible to the public.

Semantic portals called 'sampos' make open-source data for everyone to use. Developed by Eero Hyvönen, professor at Aalto University and director of Helsinki Centre for Digital Humanities, and his colleagues, sampos offer information on a range of topics – from opera and music theatre performances to analysing legislation and legal cases.

ParliamentSampo, a research infrastructure for Finnish parliamentary data, is built on millions of speeches from parliamentary sessions offering information of parliamentary networks. You can find out e.g. who has had the most speeches at the Parliament!

These semantic portals are named after a magical device from mythology – Sampo – which was bound to bring good fortune to its guardian. Likewise, sampos are meant to provide information seekers with useful resources.

‘The way Aalto teaches is completely different from what I have experienced for my entire education’, writes Bhattarabhop, also known as Best, in his latest blog text. ‘The schools and universities where I come from focus on lecture-based teaching. However, in Aalto, the education combines what is called problem-based learning or PBL with the lectures.’

Continuing his reflection on the Aalto experience, the Water and Environmental Engineering student shares: ‘In PBL, the focus shifts from the lecturer to the students. Students have the chance to work on real-life problems whether that is through group work, labs, modelling, brainstorming, or discussion. By combining these two ways of teaching Aalto includes all the students to learn in different ways, i.e., through lectures, hands-on training, or real-life projects with private companies.’

Want to experience the Aalto way of learning for yourself? Secure your ticket to an educational adventure – apply to Aalto! The application period to our master’s programmes is now open and runs until 2 January 2024.
