International research in the fields of thermal imaging, remote spectroscopy, medical imaging and astronomy has a home on the campus of the University of Arizona thanks to collaborations between researchers at the UA and two French universities.
University of Arizona President Robert N. Shelton met with representatives on Jan. 11 from the Centre National de la Recherche Scientific, or CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research), to mark the inauguration of the CNRS International Associated Laboratory for Materials and Optics on the UA campus.
“The University of Arizona is proud to be included in this collaboration with CNRS. CNRS has a remarkable reputation worldwide for the science and engineering that is conducted in its laboratories. It is a great privilege to be associated with this premier organization in France,” Shelton said.
