Engineering II, home to SSLEEC
Ever since the hub of ingenuity we know today as the Solid State Lighting and Energy Electronics Center (SSLEEC) opened in 2001 (as the Solid State Lighting Display Center), a group of highly collaborative scientists has been pushing the limits of materials science to develop pivotal semiconductor technologies. Many are patented and now provide indispensable functionality in a wide array of consumer products.
Since graduating from the UCSB College of Engineering with a degree in electrical engineering, Steve Cooper has thrived in the corporate world. He is now a key CoE supporter, dedicated to elevating the students, the research, and the culture of his alma mater.

An artist’s interpretation depicts (from background to front) a polymer that is strong but brittle, another that is flexible but weak, and a third in which iron-coordinated cross links found in mussels result in a material that is both stronger and more flexible. Illustration by Peter Allen
A marine bivalve inspires a new way to make stretchy polymers that are much stronger but just as extensible.
