Renowned Sematech Scientist and Researcher Joins Growing Core Faculty at UAlbany NanoCollege

Albany, NY | Posted on October 12th, 2007

The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") of the University at Albany today announced that a globally recognized expert in metrology technology for nanoelectronics is the newest addition to its growing cadre of world-class faculty.

Dr. Alain C. Diebold, a SEMATECH Senior Fellow who spent the past 18 years with the organization, has joined CNSE as an Empire Innovation Professor of Nanoscale Science and Executive Director of CNSE's Nanoscale Metrology and Imaging Center.

The center was established by CNSE as a multi-million dollar comprehensive atomic scale characterization and analysis laboratory to support advances in the development of technologies and devices for nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, sensors, and other applications that require very powerful thin film and material analytical techniques. The center also provides characterization expertise to assist colleges, universities and high-tech companies around the world in their research and development efforts.

Dr. Diebold, whose research covers the impact of nanoscale dimensions on both materials properties and measurement physics, is the founder of the Analytical Laboratory Managers Council for International SEMATECH, and also founded and co-chaired the group that wrote the first Metrology Roadmap for what is now known as the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors. These activities foster the development of metrology and analytical technology to serve the existing needs of manufacturers, as well as development of future generations of integrated circuits.

Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of CNSE, said, "I am delighted to welcome Dr. Diebold to the UAlbany NanoCollege, where his extensive background and recognized expertise in the area of metrology will make him a valuable asset. His work will enhance CNSE's drive for worldwide excellence in nanoscale education, research and commercialization. In addition, his presence as a member of our growing faculty serves to provide still another world-class resource for our global corporate and university partners, who represent the world's leading nanoelectronics companies and organizations."

Dr. Diebold said, "It is an honor and privilege to join the outstanding faculty at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, and I look forward to collaborating with my colleagues as I start my research activities. While measurements at the nanoscale are challenging, my research will be greatly facilitated by the resources available at CNSE, which is the most advanced facility of its kind anywhere in the world. I also look forward to continuing my work in the area of industry coordination for metrology through leadership of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors' Metrology Roadmap team, and by hosting metrology conferences and forums at CNSE."

In addition to his work with SEMATECH, Dr. Diebold has also held senior-level research and development positions with Allied Signal, now known as Honeywell, in Morristown, NJ. His undergraduate and graduate research was in the field of theoretical chemical physics at Purdue University, and he did a post-doctoral fellowship at Penn State University focusing on the area of experimental surface science. Dr. Diebold, who edited the Handbook of Silicon Semiconductor Metrology, has more than 90 technical publications, 50 invited presentations and numerous book chapters.

About UAlbany-CNSE
The UAlbany CNSE is the first college in the world dedicated to research, development, education, and deployment in the emerging disciplines of nanoscience, nanoengineering, nanobioscience, and nanoeconomics. In May 2007, it was ranked as the world's number one college for nanotechnology and microtechnology in the Annual College Ranking by Small Times magazine. CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex is the most advanced research facility of its kind at any university in the world: a $4.2 billion, 450,000-square-foot complex that attracts corporate partners from around the world and offers students a one-of-a-kind academic experience. The UAlbany NanoCollege houses the only fully-integrated, 300mm wafer, computer chip pilot prototyping and demonstration line within 65,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms. Over 1,800 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty work on site at CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex, including IBM, AMD, SONY, Toshiba, Qimonda, Honeywell, ASML, Applied Materials, Tokyo Electron, and Freescale. An expansion currently underway will increase the size of CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex to over 750,000 square feet, including over 80,000 square feet of Class 1 cleanroom space, to house over 2,000 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty by the end of 2008.
