Nano-Terra's groundbreaking nano-scale fabrication methods to be used to develop advanced materials and devices for 3M
In an effort to more fully realize the potential of nanotechnology fabrication in advanced materials and devices, the Nano-Terra Company today announced a multi-year development and licensing agreement with 3M (NYSE: MMM). Nano-Terra is a privately-held company focused on commercializing industrial applications of nano- and micro- technologies that have been developed by Nano-Terra co-founder Dr. George Whitesides at his renowned laboratory at Harvard University.
The cooperative agreement is designed to bring to market innovative,
nanotechnology-based products and solutions made possible by the
groundbreaking nano-scale, molecular fabrication methods pioneered by
Professor Whitesides and the scientists at Nano-Terra. The Cambridge-based
company is employing the design and manipulation of molecular structures
for the creation of new properties and functionalities in materials.
Carmichael Roberts, Vice Chairman and co-founder of Nano-Terra, said,
"3M is an innovative, diversified technology company with a stable of
well-known brands, and is a global leader in commercializing
nanotechnology. We are proud they have chosen Nano-Terra as a collaborative
partner with the technology and expertise to apply nano-scale fabrication
to commercially viable processes and products. As a first step, we are
focusing on how our expertise in soft lithography and in molecular
self-assembly can support 3M's own development work in certain application
The co-development work will be performed primarily at Nano-Terra's lab
facilities in Cambridge, with frequent input from and milestone reviews by
