Welcome to 4D LABS

We are an applications- and science-driven research facility at Simon Fraser University, located in British Columbia, Canada. We offer access to multiple facilities housing state-of-the-art equipment for academic, industrial and government researchers. We focus on accelerating the Design, Development, Demonstration and Delivery of advanced functional materials and nanoscale devices. Our goal-oriented environment fosters intellectual freedom and creativity—critical for breakthrough research.

Transforming ideas into tomorrow's material outcomes.

We have the scientific and business acumen to facilitate the delivery of nanotechnology advances that can be successfully applied in a wide variety of fields. We understand that true innovation requires strategic partnerships, and we are crossing boundaries between disciplines while fostering unique partnerships with international scope.

"I invite you to bring your materials research challenges to 4D LABS. We have the know-how, the facilities and the talent to design and execute customized research programs that will help you find solutions. You can partner with us in a number of ways: to take a project from inception to completion, to simply use any of our state-of-the-art facilities to achieve your own research goals, or to work somewhere in between. Please let me know how we can help you design, develop, demonstrate or deliver your advanced materials technologies"
