Center for Advanced Materials Characterization in Oregon
CAMCOR is a full service, comprehensive materials characterization center housed in the Lorry I. Lokey Laboratories at the University of Oregon. We offer materials characterization services and equipment access to academic researchers and industry partners.
Our primary services include:
- HIGH-RESOLUTION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY AND MICROANALYSIS
- Titan TEM, SEM, electron microprobe & associated analytical equipment for studying features ranging in length scale from centimeter to subatomic, morphology, & elemental composition.
- FOCUSED ION BEAM MICROSCOPY (FIB-SEM)
- Site-specific material removal, deposition, and imaging for micro and nanofabrication, TEM sample prep, cross-sectional investigation, and elemental composition. CAMCOR houses a multi-ion source plasma-FIB and a Helios FIB-SEM.
- SURFACE ANALYSIS
- Characterization of the surface and near-surface chemical composition of solid materials. The lab houses instrumentation for XPS, ToF-SIMS, Auger, AFM, FTIR and Raman spectroscopy.
- SMALL MOLECULE AND POLYMER CHARACTERIZATION
- Liquid and solid-state NMR, TGA, DSC, Rheometry and specific instruments for characterizing molecular constituents, as well as thermal and mechanical properties of materials.
- X-RAY ANALYSIS
- Equipment for determining the crystalline nature of thin-film, powder, and single crystal materials. The lab also houses small angle x-ray and x-ray fluorescence equipment.
