CENTRE FOR NANOSTRUCTURE IMAGING

The Centre for Nanostructure Imaging (CNI) began operation in April 2004. The facility, which is home to a comprehensive collection of Imaging and analytical microscopes, was jointly funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and the Ontario Innovation Trust. The facility is among the first of its kind in North America to be housed within a Chemistry Department, reflecting the growing importance of imaging technology in materials chemistry and nanotechnology.
