About NFK

The NanoFabrication Kingston (NFK) lab is a collaboration between Queen’s University and CMC Microsystems, providing researchers with access to leading-edge equipment, methodologies and expertise for designing and prototyping microsystems and nanotechnologies.

Management of day-to-day operations is provided by CMC Microsystems.

We are an open-access lab. We provide shared tools and expertise for:

  • Scientists, engineers and students from multiple disciplines;
  • Industry

NFK has established an intellectual property (IP) framework as a guide to the various issues regarding IP rights that lab users may encounter, including IP ownership, usage rights and confidentiality. This framework encourages lab users to take into account relevant IP considerations from the outset.

View the framework here.

We can help you achieve success in materials, microfluidics, micro/nano-mechanics, microelectronics and photonics technologies.

NFK is a node in a national network of university-based micro/nano discovery labs. You can learn more about these labs via CMC’s Micro-Nano Technologies Facilities Portal.
