Johannes Frantti graduated from the University of Oulu in 1992 with a M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering and received his Dr. Tech. with honors in Materials Physics in 1997 from the University of Oulu. Between 1991 and 1997 he was working at the University of Oulu. Between 1997 and 1999 and between 2000 and 2005, he was a researcher at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, and in 1999, he was working at the Naval Research Institute in Finland. In 2005, he received an Academy Research Fellowship and joined the Helsinki University of Technology. In 2005 he was ranked as first for the Technical Physics Professor, University of Oulu, by Professor Mike Glazer of University of Oxford and 2010 as one of the three candidates chosen for the last round for Professorship in International Energy Science Program of Kyoto University. He has over twenty years of experience on materials physics, including both experimental and theoretical studies on several functional materials, such as ferroelectric, magnetic, photocatalytic and gas-sensor oxides. For modelling work he has applied density-functional theory based techniques, Rietveld refinement and various quantum mechanical models. He is a Docent at the University of Oulu and his lecturing experience covers courses and lectures given in numerous universities and research institutes. At universities he initiated many still ongoing research projects on ferroelectrics and new material development. His research experience covers collaboration with large-scale research centers, including the Oak Ridge, Los Alamos, Brookhaven and Argonne National Laboratories, Rutherford and Appleton Laboratory, Paul Scherrer Institut and several international universities (e.g., University of Oxford, Simon Fraser University, Chalmers University of Technology and King Abdulaziz University) and research centers. He is participating on the European Spallation Source project as FRE representative. He prefers to have hands-on in sample synthesis, analysis, modelling, code writing and facility design. State-of-the-art experimental scattering and diffraction and sample synthesis techniques, such as neutron and synchrotron x-ray scattering, Raman scattering, electron microscopy and electrical and magnetic characterization methods and thin film deposition are applied in his experiments. At his early career stage he built and tested a pulsed laser ablation deposition chamber. He is interested in to study materials properties under extreme condition, example being large hydrostatic pressure neutron powder diffraction studies. Raman scattering has been an important technique in his studies, as is demonstrated by the seven year period spend at the Tokyo Institute of Technology in Japan, where his focus was on Raman and resonant-Raman scattering measurements. For modeling and analyzing the experimental data, he applies various computational methods, including methods and computer codes developed by him and his co-workers for parallel computation platforms. Both supercomputers and PC-computers are utilized for modeling and analysis work. His current interest is on the modeling of disordered materials and nanoparticles, development of new functional materials for rf-devices and finding alternatives for the present non-volatile memory solutions. Johannes Frantti has published about 100 scientific research papers, including peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters and conference papers and has granted and pending patents. He is a board member of FRE and Reciprocal Engineering – RE Ltd. At his leisure time he studies Japanese language and is an avid gym trainee.
