Lab will help shape the future of industrial 3D printing


The University of Waterloo is building one of the largest university-based facilities in the world to advance additive manufacturing (AM) and help companies adopt AM processes for innovative and customized products.

Backed by nearly $27 million in cash and in-kind support, the lab will enable Canadian companies to tap the enormous potential of AM, commonly known as industrial 3D printing, while also further developing the technology through research.

A tight timeline was only fitting when engineers at the University of Waterloo took on a special project for the Canadian track cycling team headed to the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Lending their expertise in a world where winners and losers are typically decided by tiny fractions of a second, Professor John McPhee and research engineer Carin Yeghiazarian had just one week in June to produce a small but technically complex piece of hardware.

Undergrad's optical systems research published in Science

Nanotechnology engineering student Jaewon Oh was part of breakthrough research that could lead to advances in miniaturized optical systems.

During an eight-month co-op position with the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the third-year Waterloo Engineering student worked as part of the team that created the first high-end optical lens on the nanoscale level that has widespread applications in laser-based microscopy, imaging, and spectroscopy.

Next stage of Ka-Band phased array technology

A research partnership between C-COM Satellite Systems Inc., and the Centre for Intelligent Antenna and Radio Systems (CIARS) in 4×4 sub-array antenna module technology should have a significant impact on the global satellite antenna business. This transformative concept will significantly reduce the cost and complexity of phased array systems and expand the phased array market for flat panel mobile antennas.
