Maine and New Hampshire renew materials manufacturing

Abstract:
In New Hampshire, nanotechnology is taking the place of textiles. In the private sector, Concord-based Nanocomp Technologies Inc. has developed a cloth-like material made of carbon nanotubes, making it stronger and lighter than other materials.

On the university side is the University of New Hampshire's Center for High-Rate Nanomanufacturing, which is a cooperative project funded by the National Science Foundation and includes Northeastern University and the University of Massachusetts Lowell. The center is working on a number of materials, including nanotechnology-based photovoltaics. At Dartmouth College in Hanover, the school's Center for Nanomaterials Research is working on projects in the biotechnology and medical fields.

Peter Antoinette, co-founder and CEO of Nanocomp, said there is a lot of potential in the advanced materials industries in both Maine and New Hampshire, and while he said the respective state governments have been supportive, he hopes more attention will move north.

"Personally, I think a lot of the attention gets pulled south (to Massachusetts), but we really need it up here, too, and its starting to happen," he said.
