2015 RM2N Symposium UW-Stevens Point Campus Facility

  1. 1. Regional Materials and Manufacturing Network (RM2 N) and UW-Stevens Point 1
  2. 2. Why UW-Stevens Point joined RM2N • Strong program in physical and natural sciences with a tradition of faculty-student collaborative research • Paper Science and Engineering program - students are prepared for an engineering career in industries important to Wisconsin - approved for a Chemical Engineering program • Wisconsin Institute for Sustainable Technology (WIST) • $13 million in grants; 34 paper and pulp mills served through research and laboratory services
  3. 3. Paper Science and Engineering Fastest student run paper machine in the world! Pilot coating and laminating machine – complete pilot line capable of handling, film, foil and paper. New! 20-inch pilot paper machine and associated plant
  4. 4. Wisconsin Institute for Sustainable Technology Entrepreneurial institute at UW-Stevens Point providing • Laboratory services include paper testing, paper grade development, pulping and bleaching studies, coating and lamination piloting, and related services that support the paper and packaging industries. • Analyses such as ion chromatography for carbohydrates, organic acids and alcohols, and our fermentation lab performs experimental trials. • Research includes biofuels, renewably sourced chemicals from biomass, and value-added uses of agricultural and forestry residuals from processing. • Educational offerings include papermaking courses, topics in sustainability, and annual conferences. Questions on WIST facilities and operations: Dr. Paul Fowler Executive Director, WIST UW-Stevens Point
  5. 5. Materials characterization Optoelectronics Laboratory – Thermal imaging of working semiconductor devices
  6. 6. Materials characterization Micromagnetics laboratory specializing in nanoscale studies of magnetic materials – imaging, measurements of magnetization, coercivity. Bit pattern on a magnetic hard drive Nanoscale magnetic dots for next generation data storage
  7. 7. For answering questions related to research facilities: Palash Banerjee Dept of Physics & Astronomy, UW-Stevens Point For answering questions related to undergraduate research activities and capstone projects: Lisa Theo URSCA Coordinator, UW-Stevens Point
