With CAMCOR, the UO has top-flight research equipment, the scientists said, including transmission electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and electron probe micro analysis.
CAMCOR is superior to facilities at top-flight schools, even MIT, Boettcher said
Since 2001, the UO has opened the state-of-the-art Lokey Labs, and installed what amounts to a high-tech extension service for the state in them, the Center for Advanced Materials Characterization in Oregon, or CAMCOR
, along with two corporate partner labs (currently SONY and Voxtel), and a gene sequencing lab.
The BEST funding allowed the fledgling company to buy needed equipment, and also went into an expansion of one of the analysis labs in the UO's CAMCOR
facility, which will aid in future research at the lab.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded the UO $402,000 for a new electron beam lithography system and a nanoimprint lithography system, to be used by university and industry researchers statewide and housed in CAMCOR
, the university's Center for Advanced Materials Characterization.

microanalytical facility, and language arts offerings.
It's important to have both centers close to the universities so there is access to labs that offer tools startups could not normally afford, Espy said, such as those found in the CAMCOR
center at UO.
First will be the home for CAMCOR
, the Center for Advanced Materials Characterization in Oregon.
is an existing university program that encourages collaboration with private industry by making the university's advanced research equipment available to tech firms working at the cutting edge of science.
