Lehigh receives INSIGHT Into Diversity Magazine’s 2020 Inspiring Programs in STEM Award

Lehigh received the 2020 Inspiring Programs in STEM Award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine for its Greer Scholars, RARE and Women in Engineering PreLUsion programs. The award honors colleges and universities that encourage and assist students from underrepresented groups to enter the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Molecular additives enhance mechanical properties of organic solar cell material

Organic solar cells are ideal for use in flexible electronics because of the inherently malleable nature of semiconducting polymers. Recent research on the interplay between processing, thermodynamics, and mechanical stability of typical photoactive layers in organic cells is providing a deeper understanding of these high-potential materials.
