Strategic Partnership for Industrial Resurgence (SPIR)
SPIR Report – 2010 – 2011
SPIR, a State University of New York (SUNY) grant program, fills a gap in state industrial assistance programs through technically advanced, multidisciplinary assistance delivered on a fast turnaround basis to New York State companies. Companies receiving SPIR funds – which typically average about one-third of the overall project cost – have access to more than 50 UB faculty engineers and applied scientists from the seven schools of engineering.

Research Institute for Safety and Security in Transportation (RISST)
RISST, established jointly by the University at Buffalo and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), is a resource to the aviation community for improving human factors aspects of security and maintenance system performance.

Department researchers prepare nanoparticles by laser-driven thermal decomposition of vapor-phase precursors. Here a transmission electron micrograph image shows two particles about 5 nm in diameter in which the crystal planes of silicon atoms are visible.
