NFK welcomes CCUWIP delegates

Jan. 14, 2018

NanoFabrication Kingston welcomed visits by two groups of students from across Canada on Sunday, Jan. 14. The delegates, from the Canadian Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics, were given a tour of the NFK lab by Operations Manager Graham Gibson. Their visit included a demonstration of the lab’s laser micromachining system, which has been a key piece of equipment for breakthrough research for NFK users.

The conference, now in its fifth year, welcomed approximately 150 students from across Canada at Queen’s University over the weekend. The conference provided opportunities for students to network, learn about the latest research and career opportunities, engage in professional development and tour local facilities that employ or service physicists, including NFK, the Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario and the Department of Physics Laser and Optics lab at Queen’s.
