The Institute for Materials Research was renamed the Brockhouse Institute for Materials Research (BIMR), in honour of Professor Brockhouse.

The BIMR was awarded a $1.3-million NSERC major installation grant for a new Field Emission Gun Scanning Transmission Electron Microscope.



The new Annex to the Arthur Bourns Building was completed, housing 2 floors of labs dedicated to polymer and materials chemistry.
