In past decades, nanostructured materials have shown promise of revolutionizing a number of areas, including theranostic, electronic, and photonic materials. Applications of these fields include yet a wider range of specialities, which can be incorporated into sensor material design. This shall be the focus of the MEAN Lab; fundamental material properties and applications of nanomaterials to sensor design. The MEAN Lab shall span a spectrum of expertise (e.g. - nanomaterials, bionanotechnology, interfacial science, electrochemistry), all of which fall under the umbrella of sensor design.
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.
