Ithaca, NY - The Cornell Center for Materials Research (CCMR) Industrial Partnerships Program is designed to help New York State’s businesses access world-class capabilities; solve technical challenges; and develop and improve their products, with the ultimate goals of revenue growth and job creation.

Chip Scan will participate in use of Shared Experimental Facilities in collaboration with Dr. Jonathan Shu, Director of CCMR.  The company is developing scanning electron microscopy methods to detect malicious circuits hidden in microelectronic devices that may pose security risks.  
 
Since the inception of JumpStart, 106 companies have benefited from this program. The program is also supported by Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR). Small to mid-sized New York State manufacturing and research and development businesses from the following industry sectors are eligible: materials, chemistry, energy, pharmaceuticals, food and textile.
