Clarkson University Professor of Chemical Engineering Ian Suni (left) 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.

CAMP Professor Ian Suni Receives Donation of Equipment for Biosensor Research

Clarkson 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 products industry.

The 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 HealthCare.

Professor 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.

CAMP Professor Benjamin Dorfman Receives SBIR Award

CAMP 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.

To enable 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.
