Lowering Barriers to Technology Adoption:
CMC helps researchers and industry across Canada’s National Design Network® develop innovations in microsystems and nanotechnologies.
Ultra-sensitive detectors for capturing light signals developed by Université de Sherbrooke’s Jean-François Pratte and his team, including Frédéric Vachon, foreground, are advancing the power and sophistication of a broad range of imaging technologies, from PET scanners to big-science endeavours such as neutrino detection.
University of Alberta professor Pedram Mousavi (left) and research scientist Rashid Mirzavand have developed a self-powered sensor for smart antennas, capable of operating in challenging settings.
Dr. David Roy-Guay, right, is working with students Vincent Halde (centre) and Olivier Bernard to miniaturize his novel, diamond-based magnetometer prototype. The quantum sensor technology shows promise in a wide variety of applications, including research in outer space.
