Fabrication of Nano-Macro Porous Glass with a Water Soluble Pore Former
SUMMARYLehigh University has developed a superior method for creating interconnected nano-macro porous glass. Most often glass is used as one monolithic solid. However, it becomes the material of choice for many other applications in tissue engineering, catalysis, virus separation, etc., if it is made with controlled porosity. For example in regenerative...

Dielectrophoretic Tweezers for Massively Parallel Manipulation of Microscopic Objects Suspended in Liquid Medium
SUMMARY The whole genome sequencing is poised to become a new standard in the healthcare paradigm. The mainstream use of personal genome sequencing can only become a reality when a profile for e ach individual can be made in real time and at a low cost. Lehigh University has developed eielectrophoretic (DEP) tweezers to help overcome this issue. While...

Spatially Distributed Fourier Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
TechnologyOptical coherence tomography is a non-invasive imaging technology used for performing high-resolution cross-sectional imaging. Optical coherence tomography utilizes infrared light (in the range of approximately 800 to 1300 nm). The image produced from optical coherence tomography is constructed by measuring the echo time delay and wavelength...
