Perfecting a chip-making process
Scientists at the University at Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering helped to perfect a new IBM computer chip manufacturing process that is expected to make chips faster and conserve more energy.
The new process uses a technique called "self assembly" that in nature creates unique structures such as seashells and snowflakes.
IBM's technique allows it to create trillions of tiny holes on computer chip wafers known as "airgaps" that act as vacuum insulators that help to boost the speed and energy conservation on the chips.
