CAMP Annual Report Page 2
CAMP MissionPerform innovative research and conduct educational efforts on the synthesis and processing of advanced materials of value to industry.
Colloid and Surface Science
The following list defines the technology fields that are currently emphasized by CAMP.
-Colloidal Dispersions and Processing
Polymer blends and foams
Surfactants, liquid crystals, and gels
Biomaterials and biological systems
-Particle Transport, Deposition and Removal
Modeling of fluid flow
Wet particulate cleaning processes
Metal and dielectric film polishing
Role of chemical and tool parameters
Modeling of fluid flow and heat and mass transfer
- Particle Synthesis and Properties
Uniform micro and nanoparticle synthesis
Optical, magnetic, and electrical properties
Adhesion and coagulation
- Thin Films and Coatings
Coated particles and fibers
CVD and PECVD
Processing of dispersions
These technologies have applications to major industrial clusters such as imaging, microelectronics, material processing, environmental control, and pharmaceutical, health care, and cosmetic products.
CAMP conducts focused materials educational activities, supports the training of materials research personnel, and interacts with the materials-related components of the academic programs at Clarkson University
Approximately $6,893,693 was received in support of the research and development operation of CAMP from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012. The funds were distributed among five sources as follows:
New York State CAT Grant- $921,200
New York State private sources- $925,816
Non-New York State private sources - $545,405
New York State Sources-$2,861,046Total - $6,893,693
Technology TransferOne of CAMP's major goals is to transfer technology developed by CAMP research to New York State businesses to use in improving their manufacturing methods and in manufacturing new and improved products. To this end, CAMP facilitates materials-related research collaborations with industry and effective dissemination and implementation of the research results.
Umicore joins CAMP as a new Corporate Member. Umicore recently donated an atomic force microscope (an Autoprobe M5 model, manufactured by Thermomicroscopes) and a JSM-6330F scanning electron microscope (manufactured by JEOL) to CAMP.
Stebbins Engineering and Manufacturing Company joins CAMP as a new Corporate Member.
Diamond Innovations joins CAMP as a new Corporate Member.
