The Lehigh Nanotech Network maintains a strong, connected nanotechnology cluster in an opportunity-rich networking environment to: Advance nanotechnology business, partnerships, and workforce development; Connect academic research with business drivers for commercialization; Promote visibility and alignment of the network with government initiatives and policies; Facilitate inclusion of socioeconomics, arts, and education in nanotechnology pursuits; Establish a nanotechnology identity for the membership.
The Materials Research Society is a not-for-profit organization which brings together scientists, engineers and research managers from industry, government, academia and research laboratories to share findings in the research and development of new materials of technological importance
PennState's Center for Nanoscale Science was established as an NSF Materials Research Science and Engineering Center to carry out interdiciplinary and eductaional outreach in the areas of Molecular nanofabrication, Biomolecular Motors, and Collective Phenomena in Restricted Geometries
The Penn State BioNEMS group, led by Prof. Tony Jun Huang, is a multidisciplinary research team that explores nanoscience and nanotechnology at the interface of physics, materials, engineering and biology (Fig.1). Their mission is to 1) understand the physical laws that govern material properties as they scale from molecular to nano to micro to meso to macro, 2) explore hierarchical nanomanufacturing techniques for the generation of micro/nano structures with controllable molecular architectures and functionality, and 3) develop micro/nano devices to benefit medical diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
The mission of the Center for Two Dimensional and Layered Materials is to conduct leading international and multidisciplinary research on 2D layered materials aiming at finding new phenomena and applications, that could be transformed into high impact products. The center offers a unique, vertically integrated research education to graduate and undergraduate students, with extremely valuable components including state-of-the-art infrastructure, and research environment.
