The IQT Nordics conference in late June 2024 plans to feature Dr. Janne Lehtinen, the Chief Science Officer of tech company SemiQon, as a key speaker. With his extensive background in quantum technology, particularly in semiconducting and superconducting quantum devices, Dr. Lehtinen brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the event.

Dr. Lehtinen’s journey in the quantum field began with his Ph.D. in 2014 at the University of Jyväskylä, where he researched quantum fluctuations in superconducting nanowires. This research laid a solid foundation for his subsequent endeavors in the field of quantum technology.

Before co-founding SemiQon, Dr. Lehtinen was a research team leader at VTT, one of Europe’s leading research institutions. There, he led the Quantum Sensors team, which comprised 17 researchers. Under his leadership, the team made significant contributions to the field of quantum sensing, an area crucial for developing advanced quantum technologies.

Dr. Lehtinen’s expertise extends to semiconducting and superconducting quantum devices, where he has over a decade of experience. His work encompasses advanced fabrication and cryogenic measurements, both essential skills in developing and applying quantum devices.

Throughout his career, Dr. Lehtinen has been involved in leading roles in several national, European, and commercial research projects. These projects have contributed to significant advancements in quantum technology, further underscoring his role as a leading figure in the field.

His academic contributions are notable, with over 30 peer-reviewed publications to his name. Moreover, Dr. Lehtinen holds several patents and patent filings, highlighting his innovative approach to quantum technology.

At the IQT Nordics conference, Dr. Lehtinen is expected to share insights from his extensive experience in quantum technology. His presentation will likely cover the latest developments in quantum sensing, the challenges and opportunities in fabricating quantum devices, and the practical applications of quantum technology in various industries.

Given his background in academic research and industry, Dr. Lehtinen’s perspective is uniquely well-rounded, encompassing both quantum technology’s theoretical and practical aspects. His expertise in the field makes him an invaluable contributor to the ongoing dialogue about the future of quantum technology and its applications.

As the conference approaches, attendees look forward to gaining insights from Dr. Lehtinen’s rich experience and his vision for the future of quantum devices. His leadership at SemiQon and his track record in pioneering research and development in quantum technology make him a highly anticipated speaker at IQT Nordics 2024.

IQT Nordics/Helsinki, June 24-26, Aalto University, Dipoli Building, Helsinki
The second annual Nordics conference partners with Bluefors, Business Finland, The Finnish Quantum Institute, and VTT and will focus on real-world quantum technology applications.
