Service Bureau Labs (Fee-for-Service)

  • Center for Materials Characterization in Oregon
    University of Oregon
    CAMCOR is a full-service materials analysis and characterization facility. It’s the largest lab in the ONAMI network and hosts eight research labs, a machine shop, an electronics shop and cutting-edge equipment for microanalysis, surface analysis, electron microscopy, device fabrication and nuclear magnetic resonance studies.
  • Center for Electron Microscopy and Nanofabrication
    Portland State University
    CEMN provides state-of-the-art facilities for materials characterization, nanofabrication techniques and testing services. The lab has numerous advanced instruments available to industry and academic researchers, including SEMs, TEMs, a dual-beam FIB, thin-film deposition equipment, plasma etchers and lithography tools.
  • Electron Microscopy Facility
    Oregon State University
    For more than 50 years, EMF has helped researchers probe specimen microstructure, microchemistry and micro-processes. The lab provides access to analytical instruments and specialized tools, including the highest speed chemical detection system available on a transmission microscope—the only one of its kind in the Pacific Northwest.
  • Electron Microprobe Laboratory
    Oregon State University
    If you need to visually and chemically analyze solids—whether bulk materials or macromolecular materials—EMP has the tools and skills onsite to help. The lab houses a Cameca SX-100 Electron Microprobe that provides compositional information on a very small scale—1 micron to be exact.

Collaborative Research Labs

  • Microproducts Breakthrough Institute
    Oregon State University
    With 80,000 square feet of manufacturing, wet lab and office space, MBI has ample room to bring academic and industry partners together to research and commercialize microchannel technologies. It comprises 9 labs, fabrication and prototyping space, room for tenants working on collaborative research projects, and a wide range of advanced equipment for microfluidics research.
  • Applied Magnetics Laboratory
    Oregon State University
    AML focuses on the discovery, development and characterization of magnetic materials and devices. Researchers have access to a clean room, a microwave laboratory, a machine shop and numerous advanced and unique tools ranging from arbitrary waveform generators to systems for ion beam sputtering. The staff can help with research, consult on magnetic designs, perform measurements and analyze data too.
  • Materials Synthesis and Characterization Facility
    Oregon State University
    MaSC’s collaborative research model pulls academic and industry experts together to explore challenges in all kinds of areas—everything from magnetics, nanophotonics and flexible electronics to thin-film deposition and vertical transport electronics. The lab’s comprehensive portfolio of tools allows researchers to both synthesize and characterize materials and devices for optical and electronic performance.
