will be sponsored by the new Faculty Center for Learning & Teaching. Dr. Dee Fink, recently retired director of the

receives project grant
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. The sprayed
films are low hazard and environmentally benign. These will be used as
light-activated augmentative communication and computer interface
devices for the physically disabled.
