The University of New Hampshire (UNH) will be partnering with AmberWave Systems, after the two institutions were named as recipients of the "Granite State Technology Innovation Grant" by the New Hampshire Innovation Research Center (NHIRC). The NHIRC’s Granite State Technology Innovation Grant leverages an investment by the state with federal dollars from the National Science Foundation’s EPSCoR program (Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research). The grant will help support the project "Cost Effective Nano-Patterning for Aspect Ratio Trapping Technology." Glen P. Miller, a professor in the department of chemistry and materials science program at UNH, will lead the grant project at the university. Miller also serves as the associate director of the Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing at UNH. The project will allow him, as well as his students, to transition from cutting-edge research to real world applications.
