Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary
October 2007, Clarkson University's Center for Advanced Materials
Processing (CAMP) celebrated its 20th Anniversary. The Executive
Director of New York State's Foundation for Science, Technology,
and Innovation (NYSTAR) Edward Reinfurt had the honor of cutting
CAMP's Anniversary cake. Dr. Charles Craig, Vice President of Corning
(a Corporate Sponsor for CAMP) and a member of the University's
Board of Trustees, also attended this exciting event.
The Center for Advanced Materials Processing at Clarkson University
is an interdisciplinary endeavor dedicated to developing Clarkson's
research and education programs in high-technology materials processing.
CAMP's Mission is to perform innovative research and conduct educational
efforts on the synthesis and processing of advanced materials of
value to industry. The research is focused on colloids and surface
science; in particular, on the production, modification and conversion
of matter for which "small" particles, colloidal media and /or surfaces
play an important role in the process and / or properties of the
final product. The following list defines the technology fields
that are currently emphasized by CAMP: Colloidal Dispersions and
Processing; Nanosystems; Particle Transport, Deposition, and Removal;
Chemical-Mechanical Planarization; Particle Synthesis and Properties;
Thin Films and Coatings; and Supporting Technologies. They have
applications to major industrial clusters such as imaging, microelectronics,
materials processing, environmental control, and pharmaceutical,
health care, and cosmetic products.

Names Clarkson University's Center for Advanced Materials Processing
CITEC Manufacturing & Technology Solutions selected Clarkson University's
Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) as its 2007 Partner
of the Year. The announcement was made, on November 14th at CITEC's
annual recognition banquet in Lake Placid, to an audience that included
70 leaders from government, economic development, academia, business,
and manufacturing organizations.
"CITEC has been extremely fortunate to have enjoyed a partnership
with Clarkson that goes back to the early 1980's when we established
our roots in the North Country and became the first non-university
tenant in one of the downtown campus buildings," said CITEC Executive
Director Thomas A. Plastino as he made the announcement.
the decades since, we have partnered on many projects but it is
truly within the past several years that the relationship has flourished.
Our selection of CAMP as the 2007 partner of the year came because
of a combination of recent factors that have allowed CAMP and CITEC
to enhance our collaboration in helping North Country manufacturers
improve their processes and profitability," Plastino continued.
