addition Clarkson Distinguished Professor Goodarz Ahmadi's
(Robert R. Hill '48 Professorship) work with Xerox involves
the study of electrohydrodynamic flows during a corona discharge
in an electrophotographic machine. Professor Ahmadi and his
collaborators have developed a computational model for analyzing
gas electrohydrodynamic flows and the transport and deposition
of charged toner particles in the presence of a strong electric
field. They showed that electrohydrodynamics could strongly
affect the transport and deposition of small particles in
corona devices. Xerox is planning to use this computational
model to improve the efficiency of their corona device.

Vice Provost S.V. Babu Featured Speaker at Engineering Conferences
in Japan and India
Provost S. V. Babu
University Vice Provost / Director of the Center for Advanced
Materials Processing (CAMP) S.V. Babu was an invited speaker
at two international engineering conferences held during the
month of December. Both lectures focused on recent developments
and emerging challenges in the field of chemical-mechanical
planarization (CMP) of metal and dielectric films.
first traveled to Chiba, Japan to speak at the SEMICON Japan
2003 conference, the world's largest exposition for semiconductor
manufacturing. His lecture examined new approaches in CMP
techniques that enable the development of slurries consisting
of two or more abrasive materials. While in Japan he also
gave two seminars at Yokohoma City University and Tokyo City
University on the topic of CMP with an emphasis on colloidal
aspects. His visit to Chiba was hosted by Ebara Corporation,
a Japanese Corporate Member of CAMP. During this visit, Vice
Provost Babu met with representatives of Kuraray Corporation
and discussed the possibility of having them join CAMP as
a Corporate Member.
also spoke at the Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers'
Chemcon 2003 conference held in Bhubaneswar, India. He was
presented a Chemcon Distinguished Speaker Award at an international
symposium held during this conference. In addition he received
a citation, a plaque, and an honorarium. Babu, who joined
Clarkson University in 1981, has been a Visiting Scientist
at Bell Communications Research Center in New Jersey, at the
Niels Bohr Institute in Denmark, and at the International
Center of Theoretical Physics in Italy. He has also been a
Visiting Professor at the Sandia National Laboratory in New
Mexico and at IBM in Endicott, New York, and taught at IIT,
Kanpur in India. In 2002 he was invited by the Board of Directors
of the Korean Society of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry
(KSIEC) to present the first Dongjin Lecture (titled "Recent
Progress and Emerging Challenges in Chemical-Mechanical Planarization")
in Korea. His research endeavors are primarily in the area
of materials processing with a strong emphasis on chemical-mechanical
planarization, thin film etching, and deposition techniques.
In addition he is the co-author of over 160 papers and 20
