$275 Millions of Economic Benefits  Derived from CAMP's Research and Technology  Continued from page 1

 CAMP has been led by Distinguished University Professor S.V. Babu since 1999 and includes an interdisciplinary team of talented faculty and technical staff.  CAMP’s mission is to perform innovative research and conduct educational efforts on the synthesis and processing of advanced materials of value to industry.  The Center spans academic boundaries by utilizing interdisciplinary science and engineering skills and knowledge to research novel materials and materials processing technologies.  Research is focused on the production, modification, and conversion of matter for which nano-size particles, colloidal media, and /or surfaces play an important role in the process or properties of the final product.  


Clarkson University’s Professor Katz Has Most Cited Paper


Professor Evgeny Katz (the Milton Kerker Chaired Professor of Colloid Science at Clarkson University)

A paper, published in the leading journal ChemPhysChem, by Evgeny Katz (the Milton Kerker Chaired Professor of Colloid Science at Clarkson University) and his coauthors has been cited more than 1,000 times.

Professor Katz coauthored "Nanoparticle Arrays on Surfaces for Electronic, Optical, and Sensor Applications" in 2000. His coauthors are Andrew N. Shipway and Itamar Willner. Their paper has continued to be one of the most accessed papers in the journal for the past 10 years, when the journal was first published. The article's abstract is available at

ChemPhysChem is a prestigious journal published by the Royal Society of Chemistry (, the leading organization in Europe for advancing the chemical sciences.

Professor Katz has held the Milton Kerker Chair position since he came to Clarkson in 2006. Previously he was a Research Associate Professor at Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a Senior Research Scientist at the Russian Academy of Sciences. His research interests include biocomputing, biofunctionalized nanomaterials, bionanoengineering, bionanotechnology for bioelectronic applications, and biosensors.

Clarkson Receives Over 1.4 Million Dollars of Intel Funding So Far


Clarkson University has received over the last ten years more than 1.4 million dollars of direct and indirect (through Semiconductor Research Corporation) funding from Intel Corporation.  Intel donated silicon wafer polishing equipment and provided the funding to support research in the area of chemical-mechanical planarization (CMP) to Professors S.V. Babu, Egon Matijevic, and Dipankar Roy, and on nanoparticle detachment to Professor Cetin Cetinkaya. The money also supported many graduate and undergraduate researchers and led to the hiring of 12 Ph.D. graduates in recent years from Clarkson.

Intel is a global leader in silicon innovation and the world’s largest manufacturer of microprocessors. It was founded in 1968 with headquarters in Santa Clara, California.
