CAMP Mission 

 Perform innovative research and conduct educational efforts on the synthesis and processing of advanced materials of value 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
Nanoparticle synthesis
Nanocomposites
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 nanoparticle 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 $5,378,411 were received in support of the research and development operation of CAMP from July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010. The funds were distributed among five sources as follows:

New York State CAT Grant- $921,200

New York State private sources- $1,168,561

Non-New York State private sources - $1,357,885

Federal-$1,715,296

Clarkson University-$215,469

Total - $5,378,411 

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.
