Since its establishment in 2012,
the Xray Center for Material Analysis has been very successful in supporting
research, community service, and technology transfer efforts of the University
of Sharjah (UoS). With a good track record in terms of research output
(publications and conference presentations), technical workshops, visiting
experts, fellowships, student projects, consultations, professional services
and training, external research funds, and links with government and
international agencies, the Xray Center has established itself as an active
research unit at UoS.
In the fall of 2014, there was a
major change in the research structure, focus, and funding at UoS, as directed
by the university Board of Trustees. In lieu of this change, it was decided by
the Xray Center executive members to form a research unit called the Center for
Advanced Materials Research (CAMR) which better fits into the new
research scheme of the university and its ambitious plans.
