Kimberly Andrews Espy, UO vice president for research and innovation and dean of the graduate school, attended an Aug. 23 celebration at the Center for Advanced Materials Characterization in Oregon (CAMCOR) inside Lokey Laboratories.

The event marked the Center’s acquisition of a new FEI Helios 600i Dual Beam Focused Ion Beam (FIB) instrument. It was attended by UO President Michael Gottfredson, CAMCOR users, directors and staff, officials from FEI and representatives from across campus. CAMCOR is a shared instrumentation facility open to academic, government and industrial users.

 “The acquisition of this new tool is a testament to the CAMCOR’S tremendous success,” Espy said. “Not only will this new instrument help meet the high demand for this outstanding facility, but it will serve to attract new users, help encourage future acquisitions, and give students the opportunity to learn to use these tools through mentorship by their faculty.”
