Dr. Elda hegmann and Dr. Torsten Hegmann

Thanks to a rare GOALI (Grant Opportunities for Academic Liaison with Industry) award from the National Science Foundation (NSF), however, Kent State University researchers in the new Advanced Materials and Liquid Crystal Institute (AMLCI) will be able to work with partners at Merck Performance Materials to advance life-saving sensory technology. The three-year grant provides $330,000 for Torsten Hegmann — Professor, Ohio Research Scholar, and associate director of the AMLCI, and Elda Hegmann — Assistant Professor in the AMLCI and Department of Biological Sciences in the Kent State College of Arts and Sciences, to study liquid crystal-nanoparticle sensors for detection of toxic gases and vapors.
