Welcome to Giga-to-Nanoelectronics Centre

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.

  1. July 22, 2016Digital X-ray: A low-cost, low-dose and high-resolution x-ray imager

    KA Imaging (Waterloo, ON): A novel, high-resolution X-ray imager was shown to achieve the same levels of accuracy as conventional chest X-rays, at a significantly lower X-ray dose and cost. New support from Grand Challenges Canada and partners will enable the innovators to continue building and testing their highly promising prototype in Zambia.

  3. Jan. 12, 2016User Fee Changes - stage 2

    Billings for G2N lab access for the Winter 2016 will reflect the second stage of our planned fee increases. This increase will bring user fees to $1900/term for 'Academic' lab clients and $3800/term for 'External' clients.

    This fee increase will help address the much higher costs which result from the large gap between the values of the Canadian and American dollar at this time.
