Research

The Center for Photonics and Nanoelectronics (CPN) at Lehigh University is devoted to exploration in photonics, electronics, and solid state devices. We channel Lehigh's intellectual and physical resources into breakthrough photonics and nanoelectronics research that serves to addresses hot-button challenges in energy, sustainabile infrastructure and environment, and healthcare and biomedicine, to name a few.


CPN researchers develop novel material devices and device architectures, partnering with and integrating Lehigh's research foundations in computational science and engineering, materials, chemistry, physics, devices and systems; expertise and facilities affiliated with CPN support partnerships and projects with colleagues from across industry, academia, and government.


Along with our sister research center, Lehigh's Center for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology, we represent Lehigh's deep and longstanding capabilities in measuring and manipulating the physical properties and behavior of materials, often in dynamic environments, while charting their reactivity and efficiency and correlating structure and chemistry -- all at the level of the nanometer and the angstrom.


In short, Lehigh's capabilities rival those of any nano research group anywhere.
