May 9, 2011 — ElectroIQ’s chief editor Peter Singer recently toured the Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) at Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY. The Center is largely focused on the synthesis and processing of advanced materials. Two professors, Sitaraman Krishnan and Devon Shipp, discuss the role of nano- and advanced materials in photovoltaics products.

Nanostructured thin films for energy apps, biomed

Sitaraman Krishnan, assistant professor in the chemical engineering department at Clarkson University, discusses his research on nanostructured thin films for bio/life sciences and energy (solar cells and fuel cells).

Polymers for PV: Better solar through polymer chemistry

Devon Shipp of the Clarkson University chemistry department and Center for Advanced Material Processing, discusses polymer materials for photovoltaics.

The visit was arranged by Tim Dunn, VP, marketing and business development, Mohawk Valley EDGE and the Marcy NanoCenter in Rome, NY and Mike Novakowski, director of business development, CenterState Corporation for Economic Opportunity, NY’s Creative Core in Syracuse, NY. This was part of a tour of various prestigious universities in upstate New York (including Cornell University, Syracuse University and Binghamton University, as well the Syracuse Center of Excellence), with an eye on how well they could help businesses that decide to locate there.
