  2. 2. Engineering Center for High-Rate Nanomanufacturing (CHN), all at the University of New Hampshire. He is an authority in the area of nanostructured carbons including fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, graphene and large acenes. His group has successfully synthesized and characterized many nanostructures and organic compounds including C3v C60H18, bis and tris-[60]fullerene adducts of large acenes, hydrogenated SWNTs, fullerene nanotubes (a.k.a., fullerene nanowhiskers), photooxidatively resistant pentacene derivatives, an exceptionally persistent heptacene derivative, and most recently a persistent nonacene derivative. He also developed a new, tip-based nanopatterning technique called FAN (Field-Assisted Nanopatterning) that has been demonstrated on organic compounds, polymers, fullerenes, metals, salts and nanoparticles. In addition to his research activities, Glen Miller directs nanotechnology outreach activities for NH's K- 16 teachers and students including an annual Nanotechnology K-12 Teachers Conference, laboratory experiments for K-12 students, REU and RET programs.
