Advanced Materials and Liquid Crystal Institute OLD

Established by the Kent State University Board of Trustees, effective Fall 2018, the Advanced Materials and Liquid Crystal Institute (AMLCI) embraces the broad array of advanced materials research conducted at Kent State, and expands the University’s strength in advanced materials.

Kent State’s new Advanced Materials and Liquid Crystal Institute (AMLCI) represents an extensive and cohesive research community that expands the scope and reach far beyond liquid crystals.

The AMLCI builds upon the Glenn H. Brown Liquid Crystal Institute’s 50-year legacy of world-class research, and draws in equal measure upon our broad and versatile clusters of advanced materials expertise within the Colleges of Aeronautics & Engineering, Architecture & Environmental Design, Arts, Arts and Sciences, and Public Health.

The AMLCI embraces a focus on interdisciplinary collaboration to leverage our many strengths in this area, including liquid crystals and display systems; the development of intelligently-designed advanced materials and devices that interact with and respond to the environment; organic electronics and semiconductors; nanoparticle delivery systems; sustainable construction and clean energy materials; 3D printing; fuel cell technology; and dynamic fabrics.
