Darrell Schlom, the Herbert Fisk Johnson Professor of Industrial Chemistry in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Cornell, has been elected a member of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE).

Election to the NAE is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering research, practice or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature,” as well as to “the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology,” according to the academy.

2016 PARADIM Industry Users Kick-Off Event

2016 PARADIM Industry Users Kick-Off Event

In August, 2016, PARADIM welcomed a set of 20 industry participants representing six different companies to the Industry Users Kick-Off Meeting.  Some of the companies, who are existing collaborators with Cornell, are interested in exploring Cornell’s new capabilities provided by PARADIM.  Others are new to Cornell and have specific project ideas in mind that are best addressed by PARADIM.  All participants are seeking assistance from the unique and growing capabilities that PARADIM provides through its user facilities and collaboration opportunities.

Cornell’s industry collaborations provide mutual benefits for both the University and our industry partners.  PARADIM is committed to providing the same benefits to a diverse and extensive set of companies in the electronic materials sector.  The PARADIM leadership team and NSF are currently working together to finalize the terms for corporate access to PARADIM facilities and staff.  Please contact us to learn more.


Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
