First in Western Canada-Nanotech installs $4.5-million electron beam lithography system at SFU

Simon Fraser University and Nanotech Security have joined forces to commission a $4.5-million electron beam lithography system at SFU’s 4D LABS.

The JEOL Election Beam Lithography (EBL) system establishes SFU as the first university in Western Canada to benefit from its capabilities, which include creating nanotechnology up to 10,000 times smaller than a human hair.

"The new system will enable new research and insights in nanotechnology," says Neil Branda, 4D LABS scientific director. "It also allows 4D LABS to be seen as a world-class facility with leading-edge program capabilities in advanced nanoscale design and development. This initiative proves that when industry and academia work together, a whole is produced that is greater than the sum of its parts."
