Professor Gary Hieftje
Professor Hieftje's research involves Spectrochemical Analysis, Chemical Instrumentation, and Information Theory. One of his current projects incorporates studies on basic atom formation, ionization, and excitation processes in flames and rare-gas plasmas, for use in atomic emission, absorption, mass, and fluorescence spectrometry.
CALM was developed to address several deficiencies that exist in undergraduate (and high school) education.
CALM addresses these problems by the following approach.
