Welcome to the Giga-to-Nanoelectronics (G2N) Centre at the University of Waterloo. G2N is a unique facility at the University of Waterloo and Canada, offering a wide range of capabilities for processing electronic materials and devices.

Established in 2005, the Centre is a hands-on facility providing users training and access to run their own research. This facility consists of groups within the University of Waterloo and external partners that make up the interdisciplinary research that spans nano-materials to large-area electronics. In addition to facilitating academic research programs, G2N also provides the capability to develop and prototype novel and emerging technologies for commercial applications.

Please look through this web site to learn more about the facility 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.
