Better than Star Wars: Chemistry discovery yields 3-D table-top objects crafted from light

Phys.org Originally Posted: July 11, 2017 A scientist's dream of 3-D projections like those he saw years ago in a Star Wars movie has led to new technology for making animated 3-D table-top objects by structuring light. The new technology uses photoswitch molecules to bring to life 3-D light structures that are viewable from 360 degrees, says chemist Alexander Lippert, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, who led the research. The economical method for shaping light into an infinite number of volumetric objects would be useful in a variety of fields, from biomedical imaging, education and engineering, to TV, movies, video games and more. "Our idea was to use chemistry and special photoswitch molecules to make a 3-D display that delivers a 360-degree view," Lippert said. "It's not a [...]

Alex Lippert’s research uses chemistry to develop affordable, glowing internal imaging techniques

SMU News Originally Posted: June 15, 2017 SMU chemist Alex Lippert has received a prestigious National Science Foundation CAREER Award, expected to total $611,000 over five years, to fund his research into alternative internal imaging techniques. NSF CAREER Awards are given to tenure-track faculty members who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research in American colleges and universities. Lippert, an assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry in SMU’s Dedman College of Humanities and Science, is an organic chemist and adviser to four doctoral students and five undergraduates who assist in his research. Lippert’s team develops synthetic organic compounds that glow in reaction to certain conditions. For example, when injected into a mouse’s tumor, the [...]
