The Pacific Centre for Advanced Materials and Microstructures (PCAMM) brings together world-class expertise and sophisticated materials research infrastructure at The University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, and The University of Victoria. This collaborative venture seeks to ensure that developments in materials growth, fabrication, and characterization at the three universities are optimized both in terms of people and resources for the entire region. Exceptional research outcomes are achieved through collaboration among research groups with complementary expertise; this philosophy, which is common in industry and government, has been adopted within PCAMM. PCAMM is based on complementary laboratories whose directors are committed to maintaining the equipment at the highest levels, both for their own individual research programs and for the research of others. In this way, PCAMM creates a unique centre for materials research that is internationally competitive and capable of addressing some of the most important contemporary materials research issues.
