Chemical Engineer Shaw Chen Receives Lifetime Achievement Award
October 19, 2007
Forum titled "Will Fuel Cells Power Rochester's Future Economy?"
October 13, 2005
Shaw Chenís research encompasses molecular design, computational chemistry, material synthesis and processing. Selected materials have beenused to demonstrate varied device concepts, such as nonabsorbing polarizers, notch filters and reflectors, polarized fluorescence and electroluminescence, organic solid-state lasers, modulation of nanoscale phase segregation. Potential applications for Chenís research include optical information processing, display, and storage as well as organic photovoltaics.
