How the people of the Kingston Nano-Fabrication Facility are developing practical applications of theoretical physics
Posted on Jul 06, 2016
Imagine technology that uses tiny sensors – a single atom thick – to detect a single unique molecule out of a trillion. Imagine perfectly secure electronic communications systems that can handle data volumes many orders of magnitude larger than what is possible now. The implication for medical science, materials analysis, computing and all our daily lives are profound. The possibilities are being explored by Queen’s engineering physics professor Robert Knobel right here at the Kingston Nano-Fabrication Laboratory.
