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 core competency of the ?nanofabrication? research group is to synthesize variety of nanoparticles, characterize them using X-ray absorption spectroscopy and utilize them to fabricate devices for biomedical applications.
CAMD is a high-tech synchrotron research center whose role is to provide equipment, expertise, and infrastructure for research and development in the area of microstructures, microdevices, and recently, nanofabrication.

The B.S. in Nanosystems Engineering (NSE) is a four year undergraduate program leading to an ABET accredited engineering degree. This interdisciplinary program was established in 2005 and prepares graduates with the knowledge and skills to integrate basic nanoscale science and engineering fundamentals in order to produce useful technology for society. The program offers students the choice to select an engineering application focus area from biomedical, chemical, electrical, mechanical, or microsystems engineering. The program draws upon the strengths of our unique combination of laboratory resources and interdisciplinary research, education, and support programs.
The Ph.D. in Engineering is an interdisciplinary degree with a strong research emphasis. The program prepares candidates for both academic and industry careers. The PhD Engineering program offers a Micro/Nanotechnology curriculum.
The purpose of the degree is train graduate students in experimental, theoretical, and computational aspects of research in molecular biology, chemistry, and physics, particularly where these disciplines intersect, and to prepare graduate students for interdisciplinary or traditional PhD programs in Biochemistry, Chemistry, Materials Science, Molecular Biology, and Physics which emphasize research at the intersections of one or more of the traditional disciplines.
The Ph.D. in Molecular Sciences and Nanotechnology provides a formal framework for students to engage in the study of structures and devices assembled by nature on the one hand, and those assembled by humans on the other.
