Advanced zn-coated steel development and manufacturing technology for automotive weight reduction and safety enhancement

2018/19-2019/20 • $637,571 • PI,CO
One of the most effective means of increasing automotive fuel efficiency and, thereby, decreasing harmful emissions is vehicle weight reduction. This can be accomplished by increasing the use of advanced high strength steels (AHSS) for structural components and body closures. Vehicle safety is...

Modelling of thermomechanical processing during multi-pass rolling of advanced steels

2017/18-2019/20 • $211,885 • PI,CO
There is a growing need to develop innovative steel-based solutions that can meet the growing infrastructure challenges across Canada. There are presently several major government and private-sector initiatives that require the development of novel steel plates with excellent strength and...

Beyond Graphene - Design, Growth, and Characterization of Alternative 2-Dimensional Materials

2017/18-2019/20 • $87,000 • PI
The discovery of two-dimensional materials, or planar sheets that are 1 (or several) atom(s) thick, in recent years has generated tremendous excitement and research activity. Graphene, hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN), and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMD's) have garnered the lion share of...

Strategies for the scalable fabrication, characterization and processing of graphene and other technologically important 2-D films

2019/20 • $54,200 • PI,CO
This proposal brings together the McMaster University Centre for Emerging Device Technologies (CEDT), the Canadian Centre for Electron Microscopy (CCEM) and the Canadian company, KennedyLabs, in an effort to move forward significantly attempts to commercialize the extraordinary properties of...

Novel scanning, milling and data handling strategies for circuit analysis

2019/20 • $27,645 • PI,CO
Computer chip manufacturing companies use high resolution electron microscopes to scan a chip and high-powered ion beams to remove material (dig under the surface), expose buried features, and thereby determine whether other companies are copying their chips and infringing upon their...

High Throughput Energy Dispersive Spectrometer for Plasma Focused Ion Beam

2018/19 • $150,000 • PI,CO
We are requesting a high-throughput energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDS) detector for the plasma focused ion beam scanning electron microscope (PFIB) recently purchased by McMaster University, the first such tool in Canada. This analytical attachment is essential for X-ray analysis and...

Novel scanning, milling and data handling strategies for circuit analysis********

2018/19 • $67,525 • PI,CO
Computer chip manufacturing companies use high resolution electron microscopes to scan a chip and high-powered ion beams to remove material (dig under the surface), expose buried features, and thereby determine whether other companies are copying their chips and infringing upon their...

Controlling and Characterizing the Conductivity and Materials Quality of CVD-grown h-BN

2018/19 • $25,000 • PI
This work seeks to controllably change the conductivity and carrier mobility in single-atom thick hexagonal boron*nitride materials using heterogenous atoms (called dopants) deposited using ion implantation. These dopants will*be introduce knock-on collisions in the lattice and substitute for...

Nanoscale Direct-Write Machining using Focused Ion Beams

2018/19 • $24,500 • PI
Focused Ion Beams are powerful tools for machining materials at the nanoscale with high resolution. This study proposes to*compare tradition FIB direct-write patterning using gallium beams to newer ion sources such as xenon, helium and neon.*Understanding how these mill is a series of benchmark...

Liquid Heating Holder for Transmission Electron Microscope

2016/17 • $149,982 • PI,CO
The design of relevant point-of-care diagnostics, biomaterials and therapies for remineralization depend strongly on the understanding of fundamental nanoscale processes in liquid. Often, a transmission electron microscope (TEM) is required to view nanoscale phenomena, but with several...
