University of New Mexico enjoys strong income from nanotech lab
Tiny science is big business for the University of New Mexico.
Companies, government entities and universities from all over the country have rented lab space and equipment at the university's Center for High Tech Materials - which is part of the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network - to invent new microscopic products in areas such as optics, solar cells and computer chips.
The network, founded by the National Science Foundation in 2004, also has been good to UNM, bringing in more than $1 million in 2007 to help the university continue to operate its labs and maintain its unique collection of equipment, said center director Steven Brueck.
