Professor & Dean of Science

Robert P. LemieuxIn addition to his administrative duties, Dean Lemieux remains an active researcher, designing advanced liquid crystal materials found in high-performance microdisplays.

His research into fundamental chemical properties that power LCD screens have resulted in displays with faster response times and fewer manufacturing defects. These contributions earned him the 2012 Samsung Mid-Career Award by the International Liquid Crystal Society.

Today, his group is one of only a few chemistry groups in the world with the expertise to design and synthesize new liquid crystal materials, characterize their physical properties, and evaluate their potential as active components of electro-optical and photonic devices.
