The Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing (CHN) is a multi-university, National Science Foundation funded center. Researchers from each university provide a specific area of expertise to the over-all goals of the center. The center has been successfully funded by the NSF through five years and is currently in the process of seeking a competitive renewal. 

Northeastern University -- Prof. Ahmed Busnaina, mechanical engineering, is director of the CHN. Participating faculty from Northeastern supply expertise in electronics, MEMS, and contamination. 

University of New Hampshire -- Prof. Glen Miller, chemistry, is the lead person for the CHN at UNH. UNH  provides strength in chemistry, physics, and materials science.

Michigan State University -- Prof. David Tomanek, molecular dynamics modeling of carbon nanotubes.
