The Laboratory for Particle Mixing and Self-Organization explores the complex interplay between particles in flows and fields for developing both fundamental science and applications.

We study phenomena ranging from the nanoscale to macroscale that impact development of a wide range of applications including coatings, mixing and separations, bioMEMS, photonics, and nanocomposites.

We have moved!  We are now part of Lehigh's new
Health, Science, and Technology Building (known as HST).

We are located on the 2nd floor...Stop by and say hello!
