The 31st symposium of the Finnish Society of Physical Pharmacy (FyFa) was held on February 13th–14th, 2020 in Hotel Arthur in Helsinki. IMC’s representation consisted of Adj. Prof. Mika Lastusaari in the arranging team and PhD student Hannah Byron giving both an oral and a poster presentation.
Everything went exceptionally well, and Hannah also won the Finnish Pharmaceutical Society’s best poster award (200 €)!
The theme of the symposium this year was Trends of Thermoanalytical Methods in Materials Characterization, and Hannah’s topic was Thermoluminescence of hackmanites produced using a zeolite-free method.
University of Turku was well represented in the Chembio 2019 event in Helsinki 27.-28.3.2019. Isabella Norrbo from our group and Maarit Karonen from NCRG presented their research in Materials in Nature seminar by FinTAC ry. In addition, Marica Engström from NCRG presented her research in the session by the chromatography society of Finland.
Great job from all of you!

Isabella and Minnea are at the Shift 2017 conference in Tenerife, Spain presenting their research topics (conference WWW). The conference and its name are referring to spectral shaping of light and the topics range from applications in energy and photochemistry to biomedical applications.
Go check the “Yb,Er up-conversion luminescence from molecular hybrid thin films prepared by ALD/MLD” poster by Minnea and “The use of synthetic hackmanites in storing UV radiation and X-rays” poster by Isabella.
Isabella is attending 9th International Conference on Dynamical Processes in Excited States of Solids (DPC’16) in Paris, France on July 17-22, 2016 with a poster “Up-conversion luminescence – a new property in tenebrescent Hackmanites”. So if you’re around go and see her poster! :)
Minnea is attending International Conference on Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics (HOPV16) in Swansea, UK on 28.6.-1.7. with a poster from our collaboration with Materials chemistry group about manufacturing Perovskite materials with ultrasonic spray method.
Emilia and Tero are participating in the 1st Conference and Spring School on Properties, Design and Applications of Upconverting Nanomaterials (UPCON) in Wroclaw, Poland on 23-27.5. with the topics “Sensitising Up-Conversion Materials with Layer-by-Layer Method” and “Extensive Study of NaYF4:Yb3+,R3+ Up-Conversion Luminescence Materials”. Come see their posters on Tuesday.
Mika is participating in Biosensors 2016 in Gothenburg, Sweden on 25-27.5. and will be presenting his topic “Using Synthetic Hackmanites as Sensors of Solar UV radiation” on Friday afternoon so go check him there!
“Kemian kevät ’16 – Innovaatioiden alkulähteillä” which is a seminar event where BSc and MSc students present their thesis topics is held in Arcanum on 26.-28.4.2016. This year also PhD students give a brief introduction about their research topics.
Inorganic materials chemistry has plenary lection on Thursday afternoon when our students will have their presentations – also as an added bonus Emilia and Minnea will have their Science Slam presentations on Tuesday.
You can find the program and from the Kemian kevät website below. WWW Program (pdf)
FSRUO Annual Workshop & School 2015 is held in Helsinki, Kumpula Science Campus on 3.-4.12.2015
Mika is giving a lecture in FSRUO (Finnish Synchrotron Radiation User Organisation) annual workshop in Helsinki on the matter of “Using Synchrotron-Based Methods for Understanding Solid State Oxides and Fluorides”
The 9th Annual MatSurf Seminar is held 9.11.2015 in Deparment of Physics and Astronomy, Quantum Auditorium from 9.00 forward.
We’re attending the seminar with a presentation of Hellen “Luminescent Non-Doped Laponites: Anionic Layered Nanosilicates” and also contribute to poster session starting at 15.20.
MatSurf stands for Turku University Centre for Materials and Surfaces and is a joint project of several research groups to make the most of the know-how and instruments in the field of Materials Research in Turku, Finland.
