Welcome to the Laser Nano Manufacturing Facility (LNMF) at Ryerson University. Our research involves the application of laser fabricated micro and nano structures in varying fields such as healthcare, solar energy and sensing.  The laboratory houses an ultrashort megahertz laser which aids in fabrication of novel
materials both at the nano and micro scale. Current projects in solar energy include the fabrication of solar cells using novel materials. We are also working on synthesizing novel micro/nano structures to repel the growth of cancer or bacteria  and creating three dimensional biosensors for DNA detection. Moreover, we have several projects that investigate the underlying fundamental physics of laser fabrication.
