Research Center Highlight


CENTER FOR ADVANCED MATERIALS AND NANOTECHNOLOGY

Lehigh has acquired funding for several new instruments that will improve re- searchers' ability to investigate and control the nanoworld. One of the new instruments, shown here, is the HS-LEIS, the world's most sensitive spectrometer for identifying surface atoms. It offers a 3,000-fold improvement in sensitivity over con- ventional spectrometers and also allows for elemental 2-D surface mapping.
