The NanoRobotics Laboratory is operating under the direction of Prof. Sylvain Martel, École Polytechnique Research Chair (CREP) in Micro/Nanosystem Development, Fabrication and Validation. The Laboratory founded and established by Dr. Martel began its operations in May 2002. The Laboratory is affiliated with the Department of Computer Engineering, the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, and with several specialized Research Groups and Networks including but not limited to the Research Group in Biomedical Sciences and Technology, the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Systems (IRIS) Network of Researchers, the Microelectronics Strategic Alliance of Québec, the Research Group in Microelectronics and the Centre for Biorecognition and Biosensors.


The main research focus of the Laboratory is to pioneer in the development of new instrumented platforms and techniques through nanorobotics by exploiting the unique properties of molecular scale entities. The main areas of applications are in medicine and bioengineering, including supporting new robotic platforms for nanomanufacturing or high-throughput automatic operations at the nanoscale. To link the nanoscale to the human scale, complex instrumented platforms unique in the world are being developed in a highly interdisciplinary environment composed of teams of researchers and graduated students with backgrounds ranging from medicine, microbiology, physics, chemistry, fluid dynamics, material sciences, and nanotechnology, to micromechanics, microelectronics, software, and computer engineering, to name but a few.
