The main research focus of the Laboratory is to pioneer in the development of new instrumented platforms and techniques through nanorobotics by exploiting the unique properties of molecular scale entities. The main areas of applications are in medicine and bioengineering, including supporting new robotic platforms for nanomanufacturing or high-throughput automatic operations at the nanoscale.
The two year program will provide graduates with the skills to operate systems and equipment associated with Canada's emerging nanotechnology industry and lead to a Diploma in Nanotechnology Systems.
The CRN2 is active in fundamental and applied research in microelectronics, nanoelectronics, and optoelectronics.
This options provides an introduction to the processes involved in the fabrication of nanoscale integrated circuits and to the computer aided design (CAD) tools necessary for the engineering of large scale system on a chip. By selecting this option, students will learn about fault tolerance in nanoscale systems and gain an understanding of quantum phenomena in systems design.
This option provides an introduction to the principles of electronics, electromagnetics and photonics as they apply at the nanoscale level. By selecting this option, students will learn about the process involved in the fabrication of nanoscale structures and become familiar with the computer aided design (CAD) tools necessary for analyzing phenomena at these very high levels of miniaturization.
The Nanoengineering Option provides broad skills suitable for entry to the nanotechnology professions, combining core Electrical Engineering and Physics courses with additional instruction in biochemistry and chemistry, and specialized instruction in nanoelectronics, nanobioengineering, and nanofabrication.
Students entering this option will be exposed to the exciting and emerging field of nano and functional materials. Subject areas covered include electronic, optical and magnetic materials, nanomaterials and their applications, nanostructured molecular sieves, nano and functional materials processing and fabrication. Employment opportunities exist in several sectors of Canadian industry, such as microelectronic/optoelectronic device fabrication, MEMS processing and fuel cell development.
