The McGill Nanotools Microfab laboratory is a fee-based open access facility. We welcome all research and development initiatives related to nano and microfabrication. Our services and competencies range from basic fabrication services to multistep processes.

In addition to the standard 4"/100mm wafer production capacity found in most university facilities, the McGill Microfab toolset is entirely 6"/150mm-compatible. This allows for small volume prototyping at modest cost, as needed. We make a point of documenting all the processes developed so that researchers can minimize the time spent in process development. Our process database is entirely available to all users.

Our strength lies in our ability to welcome multidisciplinary projects including numerous departments from the faculties of Medicine, Engineering and Science. Our experience with researchers from disciplines that are not familiar with microfabrication led us to better understand their needs and the upcoming challenges.


About the McGill Nanotools Microfab

The McGill Nanotools Microfab is a micro-nanotechnology platform that is aimed at providing micro-nanofabrication tools and know-how to academic and industrial research.

The McGill Nanotools Microfab website is dynamic place where all information about tools, processing, training, and safety can be found. Information on the website centralizes knowledge which can help to develop processes and plan work in the fab, and communicate between users.

Users are strongly asked to browse the website for info about processing and tools. If you'd like to participate by providing new process flows, recipes, or anything else that you would like to share with other users, please write to the fab manager matthieu.nannini [at] (here) .
