National Microelectronics and Photonics Testing Collaboratory:

  • Four Laboratories will make modern test and measurement instrumentation available to researchers at the host site and other Canadian universities via the Internet.

  • Both on-site and remote access will be provided

  • Each laboratory will have full-time technical support; education/training, maintenance/calibration, scheduling, etc.

  • Collaboratory funded by Canadian Foundation for Innovation.
