THE PROGRAM
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.

FUNDING
Approximately $4,623,000 were expended in support of the research and development operation of CAMP from July 1,2000 to June 30, 2001. The funds were distributed among five sources as follows:

New York State CAT Grant
$1,000,000

New York State private sources
$1,412,000

Non-New York State private sources
$1,084, 100

Federal $ 877,000

Clarkson University $ 250,000
____________________________
Total $4,623,000 ____________________________

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.
