Abstract : The first year of our Navy URI program has been unusually successful in establishing a university center for research in the fundamental surface chemistry and physics of electronics materials and materials processing. The establishment of the center is the result of the combined resources from the U.S. Navy, private industry (IBM), and Columbia University. In our first year, our plan was to use our matching IBM grant to support the salaries of most of the researchers working on the URI program, including collaborative research with NRL and to acquire some IBM instrumentation. In the meantime, our URI funds in the first year were to be used to provide a substantial increase in our research capability at Columbia through the purchase of major items of capital equipment. Finally, the first year would also be used to establish new laboratories at Columbia for research in semiconductor processing; these laboratories were renovated with Columbia University funds. As will be explained below, all of these objectives have been met or exceeded. In brief, then, the ONR-URI program has had a major impact at Columbia by establishing a broad-based program in electronic materials science. The program has made a difference here.
