"Toyota enthusiastic over Aalto’s materials research" Professor Maarit Karppinen’s research group is developing better battery materials by means of atomic layer deposition.
The car-manufacturing giant found Aalto University and Maarit Karppinen’s research group on the basis of a recommendation.‘They bought the reactor needed for atomic layer deposition from Picosun, a Finnish company that told them we would have the research expertise they needed,’ explains doctoral researcher Mikko Nisula, who works in Professor Karppinen’s group.
‘It’s great that an international car-manufacturing giant is capable in practice of utilizing the long-term basic research with ALD technology we’ve been doing. The cooperation has advanced quite smoothly,’ Professor Karppinen says.
