In Albany, A Public-Private Hybrid Aims To Bring Nano To The Marketplace

Abstract:
Walk down one 150-foot hallway inside the building known as NanoEast, and you get an immediate sense of what convergence means at the University at Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering.

Behind one door is a company that builds the clean rooms used to build semiconductors. Keep walking, and a student laboratory comes into view behind a long glass window, chock full of state-of-the-art equipment. Tucked in between are faculty offices and classrooms.

This hallway is a tiny fraction of the sprawling complex at CNSE, which is at 800,000 square feet and expanding. A tour leaves you feeling as if you should have brought bread crumbs to find your way out. On a recent day, the behemoth bustled with activity, as undergraduates celebrating the completion of an exam mingled with workers carefully pushing front opening unified pods, or FOUPs, containing stacks of the delicate wafers essential to building semiconductors.
