Our labs are located in SF4202 and SF4107. We carry out device characterization in these labs.


A sample of our equipment

We use the TNFC cleanroom facilities on campus (inside the Pratt, Bahen, and Wallberg buildings). The facility supports photolithography, electron-beam lithography, wet and dry etching, as well as metal and dielectric deposition.

High Performance Computing

We access the Compute Canada managed supercomputing facilities for some of our simulations.
