Optoelectronics Research Centre
Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) is the leading nanophotonics research centre in Finland.
We have a staff of over 70 working in five research groups: semiconductor technology, ultrafast and intense optics, nanophotonics, few cycle optics and surface science. There are currently about 40 research projects ongoing, producing over 150 publications yearly.
Having played a seminal role in the formation of several high-profile spin-off companies, ORC has close ties with the industry and provides services for business such as processing and characterization of nanophotonic components.
The main focus of ORC is on research but we also facilitate under-graduate and post-graduate studies by organizing regular courses on semiconductor technology, nanophotonics and surface science.
The director of ORC is Pekka Savolainen. The street address is Korkeakoulunkatu 3 (Sähkötalo, K- and L-wings).
