NSF announces $55 million toward national research priorities
Researcher Stephen Foulger works at the Advanced Materials Research Lab in Anderson, South Carolina.The National Science Foundation (NSF) has made 11 awards totaling $55 million aimed at building research capacity to address fundamental questions about the brain and develop new innovations at the intersection of food, energy and water systems.
The cooperative agreements are through NSF's Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) as part of its Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) Track-2... Read more.
The Center for Optical Materials Science and Engineering Technologies (COMSET), formed in 2000, is an interdisciplinary unit of the College of Engineering and Science at Clemson University. COMSET provides an organized framework with significant centralized infrastructure for faculty with common interests to collaborate in developing advanced materials, devices and systems that generate, transmit, manipulate and utilize light.
The science and engineering of light-based technologies is approaching a $7.5 trillion dollar global market. With materials as the technology enabler within all devices and components, Clemson University and South Carolina, through COMSET, are uniquely positioned to support the research, work-force development and outreach needs of the industry.
COMSET conducts an important blend of “what-if” basic science and more applied research with immediate deliverables in wide-ranging areas including organic LEDs, specialty optical fiber, light-emitting plastics, glasses and crystals.
