Atotech, UAlbany NanoCollege Launch $5M Nanoelectronics R&D Partnership

ALBANY, NY | Posted on January 17th, 2008

Atotech, a world leader in the development and manufacture of chemistry applications for the nanoelectronics industry with headquarters in Berlin, Germany, will conduct its next-generation research and development ("R&D") in copper-plating technology as part of a $5 million program being launched in partnership with the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") of the University at Albany.

A team of Atotech researchers, led by its Vice President of Semiconductor Technology Robert Preisser, will be located at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex as part of the joint program, which is focused on the development of copper deposition technologies for use in advanced device structures. R&D activities will target chemistry development, mode of operation and analytical techniques, including online technologies, usable for computer chip, chemical and biological sensors for the health and energy industries, and biochips for medical applications.

A global company with more than 3,300 employees in 36 countries around the world, Atotech will provide international support for the CNSE-centered program through its operations in Berlin and Yokohama, Japan. And, as part of the collaboration, Atotech will also fund two fellowships for students at CNSE, which was ranked by Small Times magazine in May 2007 as the world's number one college for nanotechnology and microtechnology.

Atotech Vice President of Semiconductor Technology Robert Preisser said, "We are very excited to launch this cutting-edge research and development program in collaboration with the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at its state-of-the-art Albany NanoTech Complex in the state of New York. This program will play a critical role in Atotech's push to develop and refine next-generation copper-plating technology to be used in the fabrication of nanoelectronics devices, and it is made possible by the unparalleled intellectual know-how and world-class infrastructure in place at the UAlbany NanoCollege."

Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of CNSE, said, "It is a pleasure to welcome still another global corporate leader to the growing list of leading high-tech companies at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex. This new collaboration with Atotech provides further evidence that New York State is a desired location for the world's foremost nanoelectronics companies, and demonstrates the first-class nature of the intellectual and physical assets of the UAlbany NanoCollege, which provide unparalleled competitive advantages to leading high-tech companies engaged in innovative research, development and commercialization at the nanoscale."

The agreement between Atotech and CNSE also includes the potential for further R&D initiatives in the future, which may involve the location of additional Atotech employees and tools at CNSE.

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. More than 2,000 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty work on site at CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex, from companies including IBM, AMD, SONY, Toshiba, ASML, Applied Materials, Tokyo Electron, and Freescale. An expansion currently underway will increase the size of CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex to over 800,000 square feet, including over 80,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanroom space, to house over 2,500 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty by mid-2009.
