Window to polymers

PHOTO RELEASE

LAKE SUPERIOR
STATE UNIVERSITY

*************************
Lake Superior State University chemistry professor Chris Heth eyes his department's latest acquisition, a BAS Epsilon electrochemical analyzer.

Heth will use this instrument to study new materials, called conducting polymers, that he and his students will produce in the lab.

These polymers are lightweight and flexible like plastic, and have unique electronic properties that make them useful in solar cells, organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), corrosion coatings, and in thin semiconductors.

Chemistry and environmental science students and faculty will also use the analyzer to accurately measure metals in water samples and for other projects.

Run a Web search on "LSSU physical sciences" to read about those areas of study at Lake State.
