Grant will help find the most efficient way to produce polymers, the chemical compounds that are used to make everything from building materials in spacecraft to laptops and medicines.
Physicists at the University of Michigan have demonstrated "ponderomotive spectroscopy," a new twist on an old tool lets scientists use light to study and control matter with 1,000 times better resolution and precision than previously possible.
Dr. Jason E. Bara, a University of Alabama engineering professor, is hoping efforts in his lab to find different chemicals from those now used to clean industrial emissions will lead to cheaper and more efficient methods.
