Physics of Nanoelectronics My book "The Physics of Nanoelectronics" has been published by Oxford University Press. You can order it from Amazon.

The book has also a separate web site.

My skype account is tero.h2.


I concentrate in my research on physical phenomena in nanoelectronic structures, especially on those dealing with their charge and heat transport properties. Below you can find some information regarding my work interests and history. For information about my research group, please follow this link.

List of publications

My recent work has been related to the following topics - see also the description on the site of my ERC project heattronics:
More information on these topics can be found from my publications.

Some of my ideas are also presented in my blogs (in Finnish).

My curriculum


I have advised the following doctoral theses: In addition, I participated in advising Markku Stenberg's dissertation Quantum Coherence and Mesoscopic Fluctuations.


There are nowadays two types of funding for academic research work (mostly including the salaries of the researchers and their groups): competed and competed. The difference between the two is that the first comes along with a position in a university, but first one has to compete for that position, whereas the latter one comes from different foundations, state funding agencies (in Finland, these are Tekes and the Academy of Finland), or EU. Most of my funding comes from the latter source:


I have given some invited talks in different meetings. Unfortunately this list is almost constantly a bit outdated
