Our low temperature research tackles the most challenging problems in the field of quantum physics. These include intricate properties of fermion superfluids, interfaces in quantum materials, dissipative processes when approaching the absolute zero, and discovery of new types of ordered systems at record low temperatures.
In nanophysics we focus on control of charge, flux, phonons, and microwave irradiation at the ultimate accuracy governed by quantum mechanics. Conversion between these quantities is employed for developing new paradigms and novel sensor applications.
The Brain Research Unit comprises research groups studying human brain functions at the system level. The Unit also develops methods used in brain imaging research.
- June 5, 2013 Prof. Jukka Pekola has been granted Academy Professor position for the years 2014–2018 by the Academy of Finland  
- May 6, 2013 Aalto NeuroImaging provides top infrastructure for brain research 
- April 3, 2013 Aalto University researchers from the O.V. Lounasmaa Laboratory have studied rotating superfluid flow at lower temperatures than has been possible ever before. For the first time, these measurements allow reliable extrapolations to zero temperature. The research was published in the scientific journal Nature Communications
