The research centers around improving the wear resistance of composite materials.
- Lehigh researchers discover cheap, green way to produce quantum dots
Chris Kiely, Bryan Berger, and Steven McIntosh have demonstrated a bacterial method for the low-cost, environmentally-friendly synthesis of aqueous soluble quantum dot nanoparticles at room temperature.
- Two disciplines, one focus: Crypto doesn't stand a chance
Kristen Jellison and Sabrina Jedlicka have teamed up to make monitoring water for a well-known parasite less expensive and far more effective.
- Research update: Sabrina Jedlicka and John Coulter
The researchers are continuing their multi-year effort to develop well plate inserts that will enable advanced, efficient cell culturing for biomedical research.
- Physicists map the strain in a wonder material
Slava V. Rotkin, professor of physics and of materials science and engineering, is working with an international research group to study the properties of graphene using spectroscopy and statistical analysis.
- In pursuit of the deadly tumor cell
When a malignant tumor begins to grow somewhere in the body, it can take time before it shows up on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or on released biochemical markers in the blood.
- Nonfriction literature
Lehigh researchers are experimenting with alumina nanocomposites to boost the wear resistance of Teflon, a fluoropolymer coating for cookware.
- Opening up possibilities for greener natural gas
Two professors have made discoveries that could accelerate the push for greener fuel sources.
- Crossing a critical threshold
Researchers from Lehigh University, Japan and Canada have advanced a step closer to the dream of all-optical data transmission.
- A revolution, one layer at a time
Martin Harmer and Ray Pearson, professors of materials science and engineering, are evaluating the use of ceramic nanoparticles to enhance the mechanical and electrical properties of powder-based polymers that are used in selective laser sintering (SLS), a rapid 3D printing method.
- Nanofiber processing becomes serendipitously easier
Animesh Kundu was doing research for his Ph.D. thesis when he inadvertently came upon a new and more efficient method of growing titanium oxide-based nanofibers.
- A useful state of suspension
James Gilchrist focuses on a process—placing infinitesimally thin films of material onto substrates—that is deceptively simple but loaded with complexity and possibility.
- Connecting fractures to impurities
Richard P. Vinci and his group are testing the toughness of very small amounts of metal and ceramics and finding some surprising insights.
- Flawless imperfections
Volkmar Dierolf is leading the way in research that studies materials related to light sources.
- Cost-effective gas separation
Kai Landskron, assistant professor of chemistry, is primarily a synthetic materials chemist interested in porous materials at length scales from the nanometer to the millimeter level.
- Creating fibers from tellurite glass
