Lehigh engineer discovers a high-speed nano-avalanche
Bethlehem PA (SPX) Aug 26, 2016
Charles McLaren, a doctoral student in materials science and engineering at Lehigh University, arrived last fall for his semester of research at the University of Marburg in Germany with his language skills significantly lagging behind his scientific prowess. "It was my first trip to Germany, and I barely spoke a word of German," he confessed. The main purpose of McLaren's exchange study in Marburg was to learn more about a complex process involving transformations in glass that occur under intens ... read more
