Aalto Electronics-ICT refers to research facilities of Department of Electronics and Nanoengineering at Maarintie 8 building. Research and education is carried out in the fields of electromagnetics and material studies, electronic circuit design and microelectronics, radio science and engineering, and space science and technology. Correspondingly, our facilities for experimental work are divided into three sections:

1) Antenna Characterization

  • Anechoic chamber for 2-60 GHz and two near-field scanners.

2) Electronics Test Facilities

  • Measurement devices for radio engineering and for IC characterization.

3) Space Research and Satellite Projects

  • Facilities for nanosatellite missions.


A total of 8 devices are currently available for online reservation and more are added in the future as needed. For more information see the AELICT web page. Planar Near-Field Scanner is the latest added device.
