CAMP Mission

Perform innovative research and conduct educational efforts on the synthesis and processing of advanced materials of interest to industry

Mission Focus
-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 Colloidal catalysts Sols

- Nanosystems
Nano-particle synthesis  
Nano-composites Self-assembly Biomaterials and biological systems

- Particle Transport, Deposition and Removal
Modeling of fluid flow Flow visualization Wet particulate cleaning processes

- Chemical-Mechanical Planarization
Metal and dielectric film polishing Abrasives Role of chemical and tool parameters
Post-CMP cleaning
Modeling of fluid flow and heat and mass transfer Integration issues

- Particle Synthesis and Properties Uniform micro and nano-particle synthesis
Inorganic/organic composites Optical, magnetic, and electrical properties Adhesion and coagulation

- Thin Films and Coatings
Coated particles and fibers CVD and PECVD Adhesion

- Supporting Technologies
Microstructural characterization Instrumental techniques 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.

Education and Training
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 $3,904,000 were expended in support of the research and development operation of CAMP from July 1,1999 to June 30, 2000. The funds were distributed among five sources as follows:

New York State CAT Grant $1,000,000

New York State private sources $1,137, 900

Non-New York State private sources $ 1,014, 100

Federal $ 551,700

Clarkson University $ 200,000
Total $3,903,700 ____________________________

Technology Transfer
One 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.
