We often need to relay on the unrivaled physical and chemical properties of nanomaterials to achieve desired goals. However, in many cases these materials cannot be simply added to our process flows. We therefore conduct research on methods to incorporate these materials into our fabrication processes. When needed, we have teamed up with other researchers to actually synthesize molecules to our desired specifications.

Many of the devices in our laboratory are fabricated at one of the two well-equipped cleanroom facilities in SFU. We also house an electrospraying/electrospinning system within our laboratory.

Materials related research includes:
  • Infra-red and UV light sensing based on carbon nanoparticles
  • Conductive nanocomposites
  • Chemical sensors including those for Ammonia (NH3), Methane (CH4), Humidity, and Volatile organic gas compounds.
