Research and education success earns more NSF funding
Date:12/19/2011

multiplicative power allows a researcher to create a polymer film system containing several thousand layers as thin as 8 nanometers.

When polymers are combined using the CLiPS "forced assembly" process, the resulting, nano-scale, multilayered structures possess new and exciting properties. Highlights include applications such as:

  • Tunable, inexpensive "Origami" lasers for applications in medicine, astronomy, communications and imaging
  • Biomimetic, graded-index lenses, imitating the lens of a fish eye, to increase the field of view for cameras or allow enhanced light capturing for solar panels
  • Membranes with unique gas separation and barrier properties for improved packaging that may extend food shelf-life and protect medicines, cosmetics and electronics
  • New capacitor films that more than double current energy storage density
  • Polymer nano-processing that completely does away with toxic and environmentally hazardous solvents for greener and more sustainable production capabilities.

Yet this success alone is not sufficient for a NSF award of this magnitude. CLiPS is also using these multilayered polymers as an opportunity to educate and further develop the American talent pool of individuals trained in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math the STEM pipeline.

An example of CLiPS's educational success is its Polymer Envoys program that supports underrepresented students pursuing science and technology careers. In this program, select high school students from the Cleveland Metropolitan School District work side-by-side with graduate students in the laboratory and receive instructional support in math and science.

All of the students who have completed the program are now in college the majority of them are in STEM fields. Due to this success, this program has been expanded to other CLiPS partner institutions.

CLiPS's evolving research has led to a number of patents and two spi
