Personal profile

Artistic and research interests

Mikko's research interests cover a wide variety of topics in quantum physics and technology. For example, he has studied magnetic-monopole analogues in Bose-Einstein condensates and single-electron pumping in silicon quantum dots. Currently, he is most focused on superconducting electric circuits which he has used to demonstrate the most sensitive bolometer and a quantum-circuit refrigerator. The refrigerator can potentially be used to demonstrate efficient initialization of superconducting qubits, a work that is currently on going.
