Juho Jalava, FT
- Chemist, Physicist, PhD
- Doctoral thesis besidesa the daily work at Kemira Pigments, finished in 2000
(Precipitation, Light Scattering, TSM*).
* TSM (Turbidity Spectrum Methods), is a new particle size determination method
for speroidal TiO2 pigment particles.
- In 1977 at Volvo in Göteborgissa
- In 1978 at Research Laboratory of Ciba Geigy in Basle, Switzerland
- From 1979 to 2014 (34 years) at Pigments (Vuorikemia, Kemira Pigments Oy,
Sachtleben Pigments Oy) in Pori Finland. Retired 2/2014
- Titles: first Scientist, then Laboratory Manager (Research Laboratory) and from year 1996 on Principal Scientist.
- Activities at Pigments:
- First 17 years focus in sulphate process's black part, Ti-raw materials, reaction, nuclei preparation, precipitation, and calcination.
- Project leader, e.g., in:
- producing TiO2 pigments hydrothermally.
- producing TiO2 pigments by spray calcination.
- Then ca. 17 years mathematical modelling of different process stages, especially to TSM* related.
- In years 1997-1998 half of the working capacity (hours) in a state funded (TEKES) project: Light Scattering by Small Particles.
- Project leader was Prof. Kari Lumme, University of Helsinki, a late worldwide respected light scattering expert.
- Cooperation also with some other worldwide respected light scattering experts, e.g., Prof.
Joachim Hovenier, Free University Amsterdam, and Dr. Michael Mishchenko, NASA, USA.
- Since 2014 consulting Pigments from ProfMath Oy (being one of the owners)
- Wide genealogical research
- Long-lasting interest in natural philosophy, metaphysics and consciousness studies.
As a result of almost fifty years of research, Juho Jalava has developed a model of reality
attempting to solve the psychophysical problem and connecting
consciousness and physical matter (theory is so far only presented in Finnish).
