The SFU Nanodevice Fabrication Group is located on Burnaby campus in the School of Engineering Science, Simon Fraser University, BC, Canada.  Our research focuses on developing new diagnostic sensors, solar cells, and electronic devices using two-dimensional (2D) semiconducting materials.

Our facilities consist of the shared Engineering Science cleanroom where devices a fabricated by photolithography, 2D material preparation and synthesis, metal contact deposition, and etching. The group also uses a multi-chamber cluster tool for 2D material growth, dielectric deposition, and transparent conductive oxide deposition. Facilities also include photonic characterization such as transient photoluminescence, optical absorption, and solar cell characterization. The group also accesses fabrication and material characterization tools in SFU 4DLABs.

Because of the multi-disciplinary nature of our research we work with collaborators in the Departments of Physics, Chemistry, Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology, and Molecular Biology and Biochemistry.


Fabrication of 2D material devices

2D materials have evolved into one of the leading topics in the field of material science and solid-state physics. Our research focus is fabricating 2D material devices for different applications.


Our lab facilities include a multi-chamber cluster deposition tool consisting of two plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) chambers , and two magnetron sputtering chambers.


We are looking for students excited about developing next generation semiconductor devices using nanomaterials.
