There are only four of our Helios Hydra DualBeam plasma-focused ion beams in the world. This month, the University of Oregon (UO) welcomed the first to be housed at a university or service center in North America. The acquisition promises to further position UO as a key research and testing site for UO researchers and for industrial clients who are able to lease time on the instrument.
“It’s a real win-win-win that will greatly benefit the university, our faculty doing cutting edge research and our students training for high-tech careers using the world’s most advanced tools and technologies available,” – David Conover, vice president for research and innovation, University of Oregon
We have a long-standing collaboration with UO, and this new instrument acquisition model could help keep its research facilities at the forefront of science for years to come.
Learn more about the partnership and how they plan to use their new Helios Hydra DualBeam to stay on the cutting-edge of research in UO’s online magazine, “Around the O.”
