Sematech's spreading the wealth
Bathed in the amber light of a computer chip clean room, Cecilia Montgomery's masked face betrayed no emotion, but her words conveyed her excitement that Sematech's research effort into the tiniest of things is about to get bigger.
"Growth equals longevity," said Montgomery, a technician with the international chip research consortium. "We're looking in the next five years to be very productive up here."
"Up here" is the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, also called the NanoTech complex, where business, academic and government research interests converge.
The facility, part of the State University of New York at Albany, houses some of the most advanced equipment for studying computer chips and technology on the molecular and atomic scale. That science has broad implications for the future of everything from computers and communications to medicine and solar energy.
