Second-hand scope

Abstract:
When Hewlett-Packard in Corvallis recently replaced one of its microscopes with a newer model, the company faced the task of finding a home for the old one. The scanning Auger microscope, which is about 10 years old and would cost more than $1 million to buy new today, was donated to the University, and will be up and running in the basement of Willamette Hall beginning this week.

"It was kind of a win-win thing," Skip Rung, executive director of the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute, said. "Industry needs the absolute latest ... so an older machine that's perfectly good but maybe not quite as fast is a perfect match for a university."
