The National Science Foundation has awarded a three-year grant of more than half million dollars to a multi-disciplinary research team with 17 investigators for acquisition of a unique, state-of-the-art infrared spectroscopic and imaging system to establish a new research facility at Oklahoma State University. Funded through the premier NSF major research instrument (MRI) program, the project will be led by Aihua Xie, professor of physics and Fellow of American Physical Society, in close collaboration with professors Robert Burnap, Junpeng Deng and Wouter Hoff.
The Niblack Research Scholars is an undergraduate research program funded by a gift from OSU alumnus and former Pfizer Vice Chairman Dr. John Niblack. Each year, the program awards an $8,000 scholarship to 12 students, who have the unique opportunity to conduct research in a university lab, assisted by a faculty sponsor and graduate student mentor.
