Clarkson University Receives Computer Workstation from Intel Corporation

Clarkson University has received a Dell computer system valued at $7,100 from the Intel Corporation for use in the University's Photo-Acoustics Research (PAR) Laboratory.

The Dell Precision 670 Workstation, which fields a dual processor motherboard and a significantly greater memory capacity than the laboratory's existing systems, was presented to Cetin Cetinkaya, associate professor of Mechanical Engineering, and his research associates.

"This generous gift from Intel Corporation will allow us to complete timely computational and experimental studies,"h remarked Cetinkaya. "The high-speed workstation will support the bulk of the computational work performed in our Photo-Acoustics Research Laboratory."

The PAR Laboratory at Clarkson works with a nonprofit consortium of major pharmaceutical companies that conducts research focused on decreasing new product time-to-patient, increasing quality, and lowering product costs by enhancing pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. The laboratory receives funding from Intel Corporation and International SEMATECH for nanoparticle removal and from the U.S. Army for rotational oscillators for biological and chemical MEMS sensor platforms. In addition to Clarkson, the consortium conducts research with Purdue and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and other renowned colleges and universities.

Research is performed at Clarkson University within the PAR Laboratory, the Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP), and Department of Mechanical & Aeronautical Engineering. CAMP supported research activities for drug tablet monitoring and mechanical characterization as well as nanoparticle removal and MEMS sensors leverages the resident expertise in ultrasonic testing, air-coupled acoustics and interferometer measurements.

Clarkson University, located in Potsdam, New York, is a private, nationally ranked university with a reputation for developing innovative leaders in engineering, business, the sciences, health sciences and the humanities. At Clarkson, 3,000 high-ability students excel in an environment where learning is not only positive, friendly and supportive but spans the boundaries of traditional disciplines and knowledge. Faculty achieves international recognition for their research and scholarship and connects students to their leadership potential in the marketplace through dynamic, real-world problem solving.
