Nano-Terra and 3M Enter into Nano-Collaboration

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. 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 areas.”

The co-development work will be performed primarily at Nano-Terra’s lab facilities in Cambridge, with frequent input from and milestone reviews by 3M.
