Thanks to the continuing efforts of my faculty colleagues, CAMP completed another very successful year, during which about five million dollars, a record, were raised through research contracts and unrestricted grants. This includes the million dollars provided by NYSTAR. At this level, CAMP faculty raised about half of the total Clarkson research funding. Now we are starting 2001-02 with some good and bad news. The CAMP annual technical meeting held this year in Saratoga Springs was very successful, a STAR center to be based in Syracuse with significant Clarkson participation was announced, several new large federal grants were obtained, several polishing and metrology tools were commissioned in our CMP laboratories as described elsewhere in this report, and several new corporate members joined CAMP. The bad news is mostly clouds on the horizon caused by the impact of the economic slowdown on the funding decisions of our corporate customers. We remain vigilant and are actively pursuing alternate state, federal, and private funding with strong support from the University administration. We are also exploring collaborative projects with several NYSTAR CATs and other research centers. I will describe these efforts, when they succeed, in later newsletters.

The CAMP newsletter is published four times per year by the Center for Advanced Materials Processing, a NYSTAR-designated Center for Advanced Technology located at Clarkson University.
