Stephanie Benight -

Dr. Stephanie Benight is a leader in Materials with technical background in chemistry and materials characterization and a demonstrated track record in business development and strategic partnerships. She has led and conducted root cause and failure analysis investigations of plastics, adhesives, and coatings (e.g. inks, paints) used in commercial products such as building materials (e.g. flooring), consumer electronics, medical devices, equipment components, and wind turbine blades, among others. Dr. Benight is experienced with several materials characterization techniques including FTIR, DSC/TGA, mass spectrometry, microscopy, chemical compatibility testing, mechanical property testing (e.g. tensile strength, nanoindentation) and accelerated end-use testing of materials. She has employed these methods routinely in her investigations and research. Dr. Benight also has performed research in the areas of liquid crystals, photonics, electro-optic materials, organic electronics (e.g. sensors, transistors), semiconductors, next generation computing (e.g. optical computing), and additive manufacturing (3D printing).

Tactile Material Solutions -
