MONTREAL – May 20, 2021. TAV College announced today that they have been approved for a $96,000 scientific research grant from the FRQNT (Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies). The $96,000 grant, which will be spread out over three years, was secured by Dr. Nima Nateghi, Coordinator of the Science and Springboard to DEC programs, for the collegial research project proposal entitled: “Hybrid Infrared Opto-Electronics by Direct Wafer-Level Integration of Compound Semiconductors and Graphene.”
This project, in collaboration with Polytechnique Montreal, aims to advance research in the fundamentals of integrating novel material systems at the nanoscale and will create a wealth of opportunities to engineer a new class of electronic and optoelectronic devices. “This grant will also guarantee three $2,000 scholarships for summer internships to encourage and support the participation in cutting edge research for students from TAV College’s Science programs,” said Dr. Nateghi.
This milestone marks a momentous shift in TAV’s Faculty of Science and Mathematics as the grant will introduce new innovative and academically-collaborative research studies with the College and Montreal universities.
