The Strategic Partnership for Industrial Resurgence (SPIR) Office at the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science announces grants available to small and medium sized companies interested in utilizing the Analytical and Diagnostics Laboratory (ADL), a centralized, interdisciplinary, fully staffed research facility at Binghamton University.
The lab provides instrument and technical support for materials diagnostics, analysis, characterization, and device processing in areas such as electronics systems integration and packaging, materials research, and flexible electronics. The lab also supports life sciences research applications in medical areas, security systems for detection of pathogens, and additional industrial and consumer applications, both directly as well as through related emerging technologies.
The lab includes state-of-the-art high-tech instrumentation for electron microscopy. optical microscopy, thermal analysis, non-destructive analysis, spectroscopy, x-ray analysis, mechanical and electrical testing, surface and interface analysis, thin film fabrication and analysis, mesoscale machining systems and extensive sample preparation tools and a microfabrication facility.
