A delegation of scientists from Russia visited Albany NanoTech Wednesday, underscoring the high-tech facility's growing presence on the international stage.
The group included Leonid Melamed, chief executive officer of the Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies, an organization started last year by the Russian government to develop nanotechnolgy in the country.
Nanotechnology is technology developed on the atomic and molecular level. Currently, its most profitable use is in computer-chip manufacturing, with companies like IBM Corp. and Advanced Micro Devices Inc. using it to form billions of transistors on a single processor.
The Russian scientists got an up-close look at the $4 billion Albany NanoTech facility, home to the University at Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering. The NanoCollege has created lab partnerships at the facility with companies like IBM and AMD (Advanced Micro Devices Inc.) to do cutting-edge computer-chip research that goes right into manufacturing.
