NanoFabrication Kingston (NFK)

The NanoFabrication Kingston (NFK) lab began in 2015 as a collaboration between Queen’s University and CMC Microsystems, providing researchers with access to leading-edge equipment, methodologies, and expertise for designing and prototyping microsystems and nanotechnologies. Since July 2019, Queen’s University is responsible for all aspects of NFK operation and management. Through its accessibility to academics and companies, the open-access lab enables the discovery and development of innovative microsystems and nanotechnologies and the training of next-generation innovators. NFK has also established an intellectual property (IP) framework as a guide for potential issues that lab users may encounter regarding IP property rights.
