The New York State Office of Science, Technology and Academic Research (NYSTAR) provides up to $1 million per year for CAMP/CAT operating funds. In recent years, materials processing research projects have been funded by many major corporations, national laboratories and federal government agencies. In addition to sponsoring specific research projects, a number of companies contribute to the the CAMP Industrial Research Fund, which is used to support interdisciplinary research teams working on problems of interests to these companies. These multiple resources of support effectively leverage the contribution of an individual participant.
A new building funded by New York State was completed in 1991 to house CAMP's educational and research activities. Designed to enhance interdisciplinary collaboration, the 190,000-sq.ft building contains 70 laboratories and 102 offices. The complex is a valuable resource for promoting cooperative research projects with industry.
Special facilities and equipment available to CAMP researchers include:
- Scanning and transmission electron microscopes
- Nuclear magnetic resonance equipment
- Particle characterization equipment
- Plasma and CVD equipment
- X-ray facilities
- Surface characterization equipment
