The Integrated Multi-Transducer Systems Laboratory (IMuTS Lab) is the leading Canadian research laboratory with focus on studying the basic physical phenomena at small scales and employing them to develop solutions and deliver applied results. We conduct experimental research on the development of micro– to macro–scale solutions through the integration of microdevices, nanomaterials, and integrated circuits. Much of our research is carried in collaboration with industrial partners from automotive, defense, space, security, and telecommunication applications.
We are always looking for highly motivated researchers to join us. Please see the information and instructions on the "Opportunities" section.
