NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center - Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing
Awarded in 2004 and renewed in 2009, the CHN is one of only 14 NSEC's nationwide, and one of only four such centers that focus on nanomanufacturing. The CHN focuses on template-directed assembly for high-rate, high-volume nanomanufacturing. The CHN represents a unique center structure with three Universities -- the University of Massachusetts Lowell, Northeastern University, and the University of New Hampshire forming an equal partnership.
