Dublin lab lays groundwork for Intel's nanotech future

Back in 1994, Leonard Hobbs, now process engineering department manager and research programs manager for Intel Ireland, helped transfer a 0.5-micron CMOS process to Dublin, making Fab 10 Intel's most advanced wafer facility when it opened that year. Today, the 19-year Intel veteran oversees the company's European nanotechnology research program.

Much of Intel's nanotech research is done with the Center for Research on Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices (CRANN) at Trinity College Dublin and at the Tyndall Institute in Cork. As a result, nine Intel researchers working out of Ireland can have a multiplicative effect and help influence the direction of academic research for Intel's benefit, Hobbs said. The collaborative work also helps Intel uncover promising nanotech talent for possible recruitment.
