Caption: NYU chemists have been recognized by R&D Magazine for their creation of an instrument that evaluates the viability of optical displays in consumer and industrial products. The device -- the ExicorŽ 150XT 4-PEM Mueller Polarimeter and shown with NYU doctoral student student Shane Nichols -- was developed with Oregon-based Hinds Instruments and can evaluate a range of products, including DVDs, laser crystals, and cell-phone display windows, by examining their optical properties.
