Starr’s Polymer Study Supported by American Chemical Society

Francis Starr, associate professor of physics, received a $100,000 grant from the American Chemical Petroleum Fund for his work examining the properties of extremely thin polymer films. These systems have important applications ranging from nano-electronics to artificial tissues.  The work will be supported through August 2014.
