Connecting Electronics with Science: From Collaborations and Troubleshooting to Custom Electronics Design and Manufacturing – By Jack Jackiewicz, Amy Hrdina, Megan Willis, & Violeta Gotcheva
There is a mix of old and new scientific equipment in almost every research lab at the University of Toronto. From simple heaters and stirrers to gas chromatographs and liquid-gas-cooled electron microscopes, faculty and students are reaching often to new designs and uses for laboratory equipment to be able to solve challenging scientific problems. The Electronics Facility at the Department of Chemistry works with scientists to support their efforts in finding the best designs, affordable fixes and highly customized solutions. Via collaboration with our customers, we are able to meet their needs with up to date microprocessor controlled designs. In this talk, we will feature selected electronics projects developed by the Chemistry Electronics Facility and inspired by the faculty and students.
