Welcome to Micro Nano-Scale Transport Lab

Sushanta Mitra.
Micro and Nano-scale Transport Laboratory (MNT Lab) is located at the first floor of the Quantum-Nano Centre, QNC 1512, Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN). The laboratory has state-of-art facilities to conduct fundamental studies related to fluid transport processes which are occurring at micro and nano-scale with applications in key areas of energy, environment monitoring, and bio-systems. Current research projects at MNT Lab can be viewed on the research page.


Four professors at Waterloo Engineering, including Lab Founder Sushanta Mitra, were recently awarded $570,000 in provincial funding to build their research teams and pay for research-related infrastructure.

Sushanta Mitra (mechanical and mechatronics engineering) was awarded $150,000 through the Ontario Research Fund-Research Infrastructure program for equipment to characterize capillarity and wetting for under-liquid systems.

Two researchers at Waterloo Engineering will receive more than $240,000 through a federal program to provide the tools and equipment needed for them to become leaders in their fields.
