Ferrari driving docs and nanoscale science

TAKING A BREATHER from the brainwashing over at the Global Foundries media summit last week, the INQ took a tour of Albany University's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE), even bumping in to the flamboyant, Ferrari driving doctor Nano, Alain Kaloyeros.

CNSE is purportedly the first college in the world where boffins can dedicate themselves wholly, not partially, to the study of such fascinating subjects as nanoengineering, nanobioscience, nanoeconomics, nano-R&D and deployment of nanoscience.

And this is one campus where the nerdy science types are not relegated to a shoddy, forgotten backwater of the college. The Albany nanotech complex is one of the most advanced research enterprises of its kind, a $4.5 billion, 800,000 square foot behemoth containing no less than 80,000 square feet of class-one capable cleanrooms for its over 2,000 scientists, researchers, engineers, students and faculty.
