The Lehigh Emerging Technologies Network (LETN), formerly the Lehigh Nanotech Network (LNN), was founded by Lehigh University in 2004, comprising a diverse group of business, education, government, economic development, and services/consulting members. We bring members together to learn about applications, research, funding opportunities, and educational initiatives, and to advance the understanding, development, and commercialization of novel materials technology. The LETN also supports education and outreach for student development. Membership is open to any company or organization with interest in materials or nanotechnology.
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 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.
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 Center for Nanoscale Science is a Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) supported by the National Science Foundation. The Center supports collaborative, interdisciplinary research efforts in the area of nanoscale materials. The research themes are focused broadly on nanomaterial synthesis and fabrication, complex oxide thin films, nano- and micro-motors, low-dimensional electronic nanostructures, and integrated optical metamaterials.
The mission of the Center for Solar Nanomaterials is to foster collaborative research on solar energy conversion using nanoscale materials. Projects in the Center range from very basic studies of electron and proton transfer reactions in artificial photosynthesis to advanced engineering concepts for light concentration in photovoltaic modules.
