Organisational unit: Research group
The NanoMaterials Group, headed by Prof. Esko I. Kauppinen, is among the top aerosol technology laboratories in the world and offers a unique environment for strong interdisciplinary research and a proven track record of productive cooperation. The main research areas of the group are
- the aerosol synthesis and mechanistic studies of formation of carbon nanotubes and inorganic nanoparticles
- the applications of carbon nanotubes in transparent and flexible electronics
- pharmaceutical nanoparticles and nanostructured microparticles as drug delivery systems
- high resolution electron microscopy
Prof. Esko I. Kauppinen, PhD (Physics) is the Vice-Dean responsible for research, innovations and industry relationships at the Aalto University School of Science and Tenured Professor of Physics at the Department of Applied Physics. He has published more than 380 scientific journal papers in Nature Nanotechnology, NanoLetters, ACS Nano, Angewandte Chemie, Carbon, Energy and Environmental Sciences among others, has a Hirsch-index over 43 and over 7500 citations. He has given more than 101 keynote and invited conference talks and 206 talks at world-leading companies and universities. He is considered one of the world's expert authors in the area of single walled carbon nanotube synthesis, characterisation and thin film applications, as well as in the gas phase synthesis of particles for inhalation drug delivery. He is the founding member of the companies Canatu Oy (http://www.canatu.com) and Teicos Pharma Oy (www.teicospharma.com).
