A non-profit research organization that brings together the various elements, across international boundaries, which are required for successfully transitioning exciting micro-nano technologies into aerospace systems.
This concentration allows students to study atoms and molecules used to create computer chips and other devices that are the size of a few nanometres - thousands of times smaller than current technology permits. Such discoveries will be useful in a number of fields, including aerospace, medicine, and electronics.
At Carleton, you will examine nanoscience through the disciplines of physical chemistry and electrical engineering to understand the physical, chemical and electronic characteristics of matter in this size regime. The combination of these two areas of study will equip you to fully understand nanoscience in photonic, electronic, energy and communication technologies. The focus of the program will be on materials - their use in electronic devices, their scalability and control of their properties.
CMC Microsystems provides microsystems researchers with industry-calibre design resources, access to state-of-the-art prototyping technologies, tools for test and support services to accelerate Canadian competitiveness through nano- and microelectronics.
Through courses already offered in the Faculties of Science, Engineering, and Medicine, depending on the courses completed, undergraduate students will acquire knowledge in areas related to nanotechnology.
Investigation of semiconductors and devices for optoelectronic applications including photovoltaic energy conversion and optical communications. Development of thin film transistors for electronic displays and imaging systems.
The group's research in micro- and nanobioengineering is focused on miniaturizing biological experimentation to microscopic scales and progresses along two axes: Firstly, create tools and use them for precisely controlling and varying the cellular microenvironment, which will allow studying the response of cells and groups of cells to external cues and stimuli applied to single cells. Secondly, the large scale parallelization of the biological experiments for both protein analysis and cell biological experiments.
The experimental research projects in the group address the mechanical behavior of very small systems.
The focus of the research program is to apply the recently developed tools, techniques and materials to the emerging field of Nanoelectronics.
The group's research focuses on the application and development of advanced microscopy techniques to study the structure of materials at very high spatial resolution. The core area of research is based on transmission electron microscopy methods but they also use scanning probe techniques and other characterization techniques to provide information on how the structure of materials affects the properties these materials exhibit.
