“The McGill Nanotools Microfab was the first facility to order a NanoFrazor. We immediately recognized the huge potential of this young technology with its combined patterning and imaging capability. The resulting accurate 3D patterning is used at McGill for example for optical grating couplers with enhanced efficiency. The fact that the NanoFrazor does not use charged particle beams like most conventional nanolithography methods is another exciting feature we intend to benefit from when fabricating e.g. electrodes on sensitive materials. Furthermore, high resolution nanostructures can be fabricated for example with lift-off with very little effort by our students, which is also important for us an educational institution.”
