Justin went to Ottawa to join the Barry group at Carleton University for a couple weeks. During his stay, he learned about their deposition methods and was able to prepare phosphorus containing thin films. With all the tools that Justin had has access to for his research, his favourite part of the trip was wearing a clean suit everyday. Aside from the awesome chemistry that took place, he got to experience the full tourist lifestyle by visiting parliament, the Mint, and the Rideau Canal.
