Innovation in new microsystems technologies, such as next-generation electronics, photonic circuits, MEMS, and lab-on-a-chip biosensors, requires advanced, flexible nanomaterials and microfabrication processes. Micro-nano fabrication labs in universities can provide critical prototyping capability for R&D.  The volume and diversity of microsystems technology development is growing, and these university labs can address the prototyping needs of academic innovators, industry, and entrepreneurs.


CMC Microsystems presents an overview of FACT Services (Fabrication, Assembly, Characterization, Test) for micro-nano R&D. FACT Services delivers results for academic and commercial clients using expertise and toolsets in a network of service-ready university nanofabrication labs across Canada. FACT Services will create a dedicated project to meet custom fabrication needs, including engineering consultation, process development, characterization, and early-stage production.


Four labs in the FACT Network showcase their service capabilities using examples of customer projects.

  • 3IT.Nano lab, Université de Sherbrooke: Innovation from nanoconcepts to macrosystems, and fundamental research to real market applications.
  • nanoFAB, University of Alberta: Highlights from nanoFAB’s nanofabrication and characterization capabilities, including products fabricated in the lab by industrial users, and fee-for-service projects recently completed for both industrial and academic clients.
  • Toronto Nanofabrication Center (TNFC), University of Toronto: An introduction to the process capabilities and services at TNFC, and the R&D enabled in lab-on-a-chip microfluidics, MEMS/NEMS, nano-photonics, micro/nano-electronic devices, integrated optics, nano-plasmonics, and photovoltaic devices.
  • Thin Films Group (GCM), Polytechnique Montréal: Summary of capabilities and expertise in microfabrication and material characterization equipment in different labs regrouped under Central Facilities Management in the campus of Université de Montréal, along with examples of projects realized in GCM.
