PITA Fiscal Year 2008 Projects - Nanotechnology

The Development Of Micro And Nanoscale Molding Technology For Enhanced Electronic And Biomedical Applications

The proposed project would focus on enabling the continuation of Tyco Electronics as a Pennsylvania based international leader in the field of electronic systems. Tyco's electronic and optoelectronic components are known for their quality and reliability, but the marketplace is continuously demanding that such products become smaller and of increased complexity. The demand for micro and even nanoscale molded products is rapidly growing, and succeeding in this area without understanding science based processing capabilities and opportunities is not possible. Partnering Tyco Electronics' strengths with Lehigh's existing international leadership in the micro and nanoscale molding field will enable the successful development of the modeling science and experimental understanding related to precision micro and nanoscale injection molding processing.
