Abdollah Pil-Ali, a PhD student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, supervised by Professor Karim Karim, has won third place at the 2020 IEEE Student Poster Presentation for the poster titled: Illumination Curve Extraction of A Coded-Aperture Phase Contrast X-Ray Imaging System Using A High-Resolution X-ray Detector.  

Congratulations Abdollah!

The G2N facility has recently installed new processing and characterization tools as part of its expansion from a $5.7M CFI-ORF Innovation Fund Project. The funding supports the new Facility for Functionally Advanced Sensor Technology (FAST) within G2N to support the efforts of the lab in the development of organic and inorganic semiconductor devices.

 The recent additions include:

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.

Scaling partners: Christie Medical Holdings, Delft Imaging Systems, Ontario Centres of Excellence

ECE's Ferhat Aydinoglu, PhD student, under the supervision of Professor Bo Cui, has won the 2016 EIPBN Best Student Poster Paper award for his poster titled “Down to 7 nm pores in Si by photo-assisted electrochemical etching”.

This conference was the 60th International Conference on Electron, Ion and Photon Beam Technology and Nano-fabrication (EIPBN) held in Pittsburgh, PA in May.


X-ray technology is at the beginning of a digital revolution that will transform the Canadian health-care system by detecting diseases such as cancer and heart disease faster and more accurately than traditional X-ray machines, allowing patients to begin treatment sooner.
