Lowering Barriers to Technology Adoption:
CMC helps researchers and industry across Canada’s National Design Network® develop innovations in microsystems and nanotechnologies.
Nanofabrication capabilities helped Queen’s University researchers and their graduate students develop a novel, highly sensitive portable biosensor that can be manufactured simply and inexpensively. Their technology now forms the basis of an award-winning startup company, Spectra Plasmonics. Shown left to right: Malcolm Eade, Spectra CEO; Graham Gibson, Hannah Dies, Aris Docoslis and Josh Raveendran.
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.
For infertile couples, the expense, duration and low success rates of assisted reproduction can make the process a physical and emotional ordeal.
