Dr. Panu Koppinen is a research scientist at VTT. Prior joining VTT, he has worked as a post-doctoral researcher under Prof. Jason Petta at Princeton University, NJ, USA.
He was involved in the QuEST program “Harnessing Quantum Entanglement in Semiconductor Circuits” funded by DARPA. After Princeton, Dr. Koppinen worked as a guest researcher in Quantum Processes and Metrology group led by Dr. Garnett Bryant at NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology), Gaithersburg, USA. He has been involved in research projects developing SINIS coolers and their integration to nanomechanical systems, the main achievement being cooling of both electrons and phonons in suspended nanomechanical beam.
He has also worked on silicon based semiconductor quantum dot systems and single electron devices and studied their feasibility on quantum information and metrology. Dr. Koppinen joined VTT in August 2012, and is an author/co-author in 17 scientific publications.
