Future Green Technologies: Challenges and Opportunities - September 6, 2013, Lehigh University
One of society’s most pressing concerns is to find ways to meet its skyrocketing energy demands. The answers to this challenge must not only be efficient -- both technically and economically -- but also limit impact on the environment. The development of advanced electricity systems – the so-called “smart grid” -- will be a key part of the solution. Read more

Microsystems Technology: Fulfilling the Promise - May 14, 2013, Gaithersburg, MD
