Another summer is well underway and here at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL). Our annual high school internship program is in full swing and we are enjoying getting to know the newest round of students.
DURHAM, N.H. – Bridgewater State University and Carleton College have joined the more than 20 colleges and universities around the country using UNHCEMS®, a web-deployed chemical inventory management system developed at the University of New Hampshire.
With the EPA passing increasingly strict regulations regarding trihalomethane levels in all areas of water distribution systems, methods for reducing those levels have become increasingly important. Professor Dr. Robin Collins developed a cost effective solution to lower the level of trihalomethanes and other volatile organic compounds in drinking water by using in-line diffused aeration without expensive infrastructure improvements.

New Hampshire Innovation Research Center (NHIRC) is excited to share that Turbocam Energy Solutions, LLC, a Dover-based affiliate of Turbocam International, is collaborating with researchers from the University of New Hampshire to evaluate the feasibility of replacing forging and casting with an additive manufactured alloy.
Quaterrylene is an aromatic hydrocarbon (essentially a small piece of graphene) with many applications in organic photovoltaics, organic thin-film transistors, and organic light emitting diodes due to its photophysical and semiconducting properties. Despite the unique value of quaterrylene, the current availability of quaterrylene is limited. Existing methods of synthesizing quaterrylene are expensive, time consuming, and result in low yields. In addition, these methods are only suitable for small-scale reactions.
The University of New Hampshire has a massive campus, with hundreds of departments, several different career contacts, and thousands of faculty, and while that may benefit our 15,000 students, we understand that it hasn’t always made our local recruiters’ lives very easy. So, this one is for you human resources! Thanks for hanging in there. – The UNH Career Center
UNHInnovation (UNHI) has worked with the UNH School of Law since 2010 to bring law school student interns into our office to gain technology transfer experience within a higher education setting. This year, we are very pleased to welcome Cassie Simmons and Andrew Schmid to the office. Andrew and Cassie started on June 2, 2014 and will work with us over the course of the next year. Both interns have just completed their 1L year (first year of law school).
