Welcome to Giga-to-Nanoelectronics Centre

The giga to nanoelectronics centre

Welcome to the Giga-to-Nanoelectronics (G2N) Centre at the University of Waterloo. Established in 2005, the G2N is a unique on-campus microfabrication facility offering a wide range of capabilities for processing electronic materials and devices. The lab provides users hands-on training and access to perform their own research activities, enabling a diverse group of research activities conducted by students and external industrial partners. The lab facilitates interdisciplinary research that spans nano-materials processing to large-area electronics development. In addition to enabling academic research programs, G2N also provides the capability to develop and prototype novel emerging technologies for commercial applications.

This website provides information for accessing G2N and the opportunities it offers for your research area. If you have any questions or comments about access, competencies, or fees then please contact us.
