Optical Characterization and Microscopy

Optical characterization of materials and multilayer films is central to our efforts in semiconductor- based and other optoelectronic device development. It is also crucial to our developing efforts in polymers and biomaterials. This new laboratory is the union of the existing optical microscopy laboratory combined with a large acquisition of new optical characterization equipment including two spectroscopic ellipsometers covering the entire IR-visible-UV range and broad-band optical sources. This facility is operated jointly by the BIMR and the Ontario Photonics Consortium.
