Nanoscience Facilities

The Nanoscience facility is located on the second floor of the Summerlee Science Complex in rooms 2109 and 2110. These laboratories provide undergraduate students a unique opportunity to study the chemical and physical behaviour of materials at the nanoscale. Specialized laboratory experiments have been developed to give our undergraduate students a unique hands-on laboratory experience in which students learn to prepare a variety of nanomaterials and measure their properties using state of the art imaging and spectroscopic instruments. The Nanoscience courses are taught by members of the physics and chemistry departments that provides our students with multidisciplinary training that prepares them for their future careers in academia or industry.
