Dr. Robert Engelken, Electrical Engineering, in conjunction with the company InvoTek, Inc. of Alma, was recently awarded a National Institutes of Health Phase I SBIR grant for the project, "Reliable and Safe Laser Pointing for People with Locked-in Syndrome." The project builds upon Dr. Engelken’s and InvoTek’s previous joint research on the development of a new generation of low cost, large area light detector systems using films composed of semiconductor/polymer composites.
