Small World

Game-changing technology sometimes comes in small packages. For example, with two magnets and a lightbulb filament — a package thinner than a deck of cards — Joe Beckman and a team of Oregon State University collaborators may revolutionize the mass spectrometry (aka, “mass spec”) industry. Their device amplifies the sensitivity and precision of technology that is the workhorse of chemistry labs. And it requires minimal retooling of existing equipment.

Partnership Advances the Cutting Edge

As partners in Oregon State’s Advantage program, Blount International is working with OSU researchers to advance the state of the art in saw technologies for agriculture, construction and landscaping in addition to forestry.

Seedbed for Startups

Methane-powered engines. Autonomous helicopters. Online shopping assistants. Electricity from wastewater. These new products and the business opportunities they generate are in the pipeline at Oregon State University’s Advantage Accelerator.

Seeing the Light

Oregon scientists and startups have joined forces to create the next generation of “Low-E” window technology.
