NANO BRIEFS
Solid gold research
A silent revolution is occurring in electronics: Many 20th-century solid state electronic devices are
being replaced by tiny microelectromechanical systems, or MEMS. They outperform their solid
state counterparts in some applications, use less power and are often cheaper to make.
 
A closer look at material complexions
A group of universities led by Lehigh has received a $7.5-million grant from the U.S. Department of
Defense (DoD) to study grain-boundary interphases and their effects on the mechanical, electrical
and thermal properties of strategic engineering materials
 
Making the most of a good thing
For half a century, the Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) of Lehigh's Center for Advanced Materials
and Nanotechnology (CAMN) has helped companies meet materials challenges.
