In August 2009 NMHU received funding from National Science Foundation NSF ($2.7M for 5 years) to conduct project "Light Matter Interactions: Theory and Applications" (LMITA) in frameworks of PREM program in collaboration with Georgia Institute of Technology and Morehouse College. The objective of the PREM program is to broaden participation and enhance diversity in materials research and education by stimulating the development of formal, long-term, multi-investigator, collaborative research and education partnerships between minority*-serving colleges and universities, women's colleges, groups that are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics STEM and the NSF Division of Materials Research DMR-supported centers and/or facilities.
