  • Doctoral Student Wins Green Chemistry Award - Cascade Newsletter, Fall 2000
  • Intel Donates Instrumentation to Department - Intel recently donated $425,000 worth of instrumentation to the Materials Science Institute. The new equipment is being used in chemistry, physics and biology labs. The gift included two optical light microscropy stations with CCD cameras and vibration isolation tables. A large sputter deposition system was also donated and parted out to various MSI laboratories, inlcuding six cryopumps, five turbo pumps, roughing pumps, and associated vacuum harware and power supplies. The system measured over ten feet square and weighed several tons. The Materials Science Institute fosters research between chemistry and physics at the University of Oregon.
