POTSDAM -- During the past ten years, Clarkson University has received more than $1.4 million of direct and indirect funding from Intel Corporation.

The world's leading chip maker donated silicon wafer polishing equipment and provided the funding to support research in the area of chemical-mechanical planarization (CMP) to Professors S.V. Babu, Egon Matijevic, and Dipankar Roy, and in nanoparticle detachment to Prof. Cetin Cetinkaya.

The money also supported many graduate and undergraduate researchers, and led to the hiring of 12 Clarkson Ph.D. graduates in recent years.

Intel is a global leader in silicon innovation and the world's largest manufacturer of microprocessors. It was founded in 1968 with headquarters in Santa Clara, Calif.
