Dominique Drouin

Dominique Drouin is a member of the Nanofabrication and Nanocharacterization Research Center and professor in electrical engineering department at the Universite de Sherbrooke, Canada since 1999. Dominique received is B.Ap.S. in electrical engineering and his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering both at the Universite de Sherbrooke. Before joining Universite de Sherbrooke he was a postdoctoral fellow at University of Western Australia and University of Technology Sydney in Australia.

He is involved in the field of nanoelectronic devices fabrication and advanced materials characterization (GaN, ZnO, InAs quantum dots). He is also co-author of a world-renowned research program (CASINO) on imaging simulation software for the scanning electron microscope. This Monte-Carlo software aims at helping SEM users in their X-ray microanalyses, their cathodoluminescence experiments, metrology applications and also in more advanced applications such as electron beam lithography. This software is available on the Internet ( and used by over 10,000 users worldwide.

Dominique has published more than 150 papers in international journals and conferences in the field of cathodoluminescence, electron beam lithography and electron-materials interaction modeling. He has given 9 invited presentations at international meetings. From 2000 to 2006, Dominique was VP operations of Quantiscript, a company in the field of resistless e-beam lithography.
