A CREATE-ive collaboration

NanoFabrication Kingston congratulates Dr. James Fraser, Professor of Physics, Engineering Physics & Astronomy at Queen’s University, who was recently awarded a $1.6 M CREATE grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council. His Materials for Advanced Photonics and Sensing (MAPS) project will provide 42 graduate students and 22 undergraduate students across multiple disciplines with comprehensive training that will position them for highly skilled jobs in the photonics industry. Photonics, which uses light instead of electricity to power technology, is experiencing dramatic global growth. “NanoFab Kingston is proud to be a part of this initiative, and we look forward to working with MAPS students in training and prototyping in this exciting, emerging field,” says Graham Gibson, Operations Manager at NFK.
