Abstract:

We have discovered a new metal organic framework piezoelectric material which has not been reported in the literature, nicknamed red until we can publish our results. We have identified several other strong candidates, which we are synthesizing and characterizing. Organic ferroelectric research is receiving a great deal of interest in the scientific community. With the help of this grant, CSUSB is at the forefront of this endeavor. The results from this research provided the foundation for a successful National Science Foundation Centers of Research Excellence in Science and Technology NSF-CREST grant awarded to CSUSB 5,000,000.00 for five years. The grant is renewable, and has several supplements specifically associated with it. We have already applied for one supplement. ARO funds from this grant provided stipends to directly support several students, most from unrepresented groups. In addition, numerous students received financial support from other sources however, they too benefited from this grant in terms of faculty mentors supported by the grant and the use of scientific equipment.
