A few photons are enough

When the current electronics technology cannot meet the rapidly expanding needs of data communication, light comes to the rescue. A research group at TUT is developing light-based technologies and enabling applications that, until now, have been little more than dreams.

“Our goal is to replace electrons with photons. We can already fabricate hybrid components, which combine light-emitting devices and silicon-based circuitry. However, there are still many challenges, such as achieving the necessary accuracy for aligning the different components with one another,” says Professor Mircea Guina.

Right at home between industry and science

TUT Industry Professor Matti Sommarberg at TUT feels himself at home on the interfaces of industry and the university and in between disciplines. The grand old man of the mechanical engineering industry is now eagerly looking forward to entering the world of research.

Sommarberg is very familiar with TUT, having completed one of his two Master’s degrees there, but also through his work as a member of the TUT Advisory Board. According to Sommarberg, the TUT strategy says it all: technology for the benefit of people.

“Technology enables many great things for humankind. This is why the idea behind Tampere3 is so unique, and BioMediTech, for instance, is a great example of good collaboration between different disciplines.”

TUT for the openness of science

Science and research must be open and transparent in order to be self-healing. When all research data is available to anyone, the research results can be repeated and the methods improved. This is a necessity for scientific and technological advancement. TUT’s new Research Data Policy outlines that research materials and methods are, by default, open and available for joint use.

“Openness is not only an option – it is a necessity,” says Professor Esa Räsänen from TUT’s Department of Physics in science magazine Interface.

TUT – a foundation university

Tampere University of Technology is one of the two Finnish universities which operate in the form of a foundation. The foundation model promotes the development of education and research. It gives the University good prerequisites to succeed amid growing international competition.

The increased autonomy provides a competitive edge when competing for good researchers, inspiring teachers and talented students. The proceeds of foundation capital enable further investment in new openings in research and education.
