The University of New Hampshire is a public research university in the University System of New Hampshire , in the United States. The main campus is in Durham, New Hampshire, in the Seacoast region of the state. An additional campus is located in Manchester, and the University of New Hampshire School of Law is located in Concord. The law school is renowned for its intellectual property law programs, consistently ranking in the top ten of U.S. News & World Report rankings.With over 15,000 students, UNH is the largest university in the state. The university is one of only nine land, sea and space grant institutions in the nation. Since July 1, 2007, Mark W. Huddleston has served as the university's 19th president.The University of New Hampshire was ranked as having the 4th most expensive in-state tuition for a public 4-year college in the country by the Department of Education in 2012.In 2004, UNH was the only public institution in New England to rank in the top 10 of number of Fulbright fellowships awarded, with five graduates receiving grants. In the same year, UNH was ranked the 10th best entrepreneurial college in the nation by The Princeton Review. According to U.S. News & World Report's "America's Best Colleges" listings, the University of New Hampshire is a "more selective" national university, placing it in the first out of five tiers of competitiveness when it comes to admissions standards. Due to its extensive efforts in the area of sustainability, UNH was one of 15 highest scoring schools on the College Sustainability Report Card 2009, with the Sustainable Endowments Institute awarding it a grade of "A-".In 2012, UNH was named the 6th "coolest school" in the country by Sierra magazine for its efforts in sustainability.

The system and method for modifying the output beam parameters of a plurality of laser diode array sources comprises scalable pump sources for use with diode pumped alkali lasers. The present invention optimizes a diode laser pump source by spectrally-narrowing stacks of diode laser array bars using a single external cavity outfitted with a proprietary step-mirror and cylindrical optical elements. The system and method of the present invention multiplies by one-hundred fold the number of stacks that can be narrowed, vastly increasing the attainable power output by utilizing beam-splitters.

A method and apparatus for producing boron nitride nanotubes and continuous boron nitride nanotube yarn or tapes is provided. The apparatus includes rotating reaction tubes that allow for continuous chemical vapor deposition of boron nitride nanotubes. The rotation of the reaction tubes allows the boron nitride nanotubes to be spun into yarns or made into tapes, without post process or external rotation or spinning of the gathered nanotubes. Boron nitride nanotube yarns or tapes of great length can be produced as a result, thereby providing industry with a readily useable format for this type of material. Dopants such as carbon can be added to engineer the band gap of the nanotubes. Catalysts may be formed outside or inside the reactor.

Systems and methods are described herein for providing one or more data transfer parameters. A network map of a network is stored, and input data regarding a desired data transfer is received. The input data includes a sender identifier associated with a sender node in the network, a receiver identifier associated with a receiver node in the network, and a performance metric. A time for initiating the desired data transfer is determined based on the network map, the sender identifier, the receiver identifier, and the performance metric, and the determined time is provided as a recommendation for initiating the data transfer.
