explains to Jianbin Wang (right), a doctoral candidate in
chemical engineering, how to make the electrical connections
to the new Bioanalytical Systems (BAS) workstation. The BAS
workstation, which will be used for biosensor research, was
donated to Professor Suni's laboratory by Bayer HealthCare.
Professor Ian Suni Receives Donation of Equipment for Biosensor
University Professor of Chemical Engineering Ian Suni has
received a donation of equipment to his laboratory from Bayer
HealthCare, a subgroup of Bayer AG and one of the world's
leading, innovative companies in the health care and medical
new Bioanalytical Systems (BAS) 100/b Electrochemical Workstation
and Impedance Module will be employed for biosensor research
designed for the development of novel, hand-held electrochemical
biosensors for glucose and other analytes. It will also be
used for other ongoing projects in Professor Suni's laboratory,
including a biosensor research project in collaboration with
Clarkson Professor of Chemistry Linda Luck, that is funded
by the National Science Foundation. The equipment donation
was facilitated by Clarkson alumnus Michael Pugia '82, director,
New Product Development in Near Patient Testing for Bayer
Suni's research focuses on applying knowledge of the fundamentals
of the solid-liquid interface to interesting problems in semiconductor
processing, nanotechnology and biosensors. His work often
involves the use of analytical techniques in electrochemistry
and spectroscopy, as well as mathematical modeling of reaction
and transport processes.
Professor Benjamin Dorfman Receives SBIR Award
Professor Benjamin Dorfman recently received a SBIR Award.
This award is the result of a joint proposal between NanoDynamics
and Clarkson University for Low-Cost Quasi-Amorphous Carbon
Dielectrics in Pulsed Power Capacitors for the Air Force.
A brief description of the work is provided.
leading-edge, pulse power, high energy density (>5 J/g) capacitor
capabilities with nanosecond delivery, a substantial reduction
in size, weight and volume of the capacitorcomponent over
state-of-the art devices while delivering superior electrical
and thermal performance are offered by the proposed materials.The
proposed ultrahigh performance dielectrics will be available
at low cost, through an elegant, patent-protected approach
to produce synergetic diamond-graphene quasi-amorphous (QUASAMT)
materials with a density ranging from 1.35 to 1.85 g/cm<>3.
