Small Times magazine ranks New York as the fourth hottest state for nanotechnology – the manipulation of individual atoms and molecules to develop infinitely smaller computer chips and electronic devices – based on its “vast research capabilities.”
The University at Albany’s College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering
and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
are leading the way in this research while Albany Nanotech
has billions of dollars in state and industry support.
CNSE is the first college in the world devoted exclusively to nanoscale science and recently ranked as the best school in the world for nanotechnology and microtechnology.
Nearly two thousand researchers, engineers and technicians – from companies like AMD, AMSL, Applied Materials, Honeywell, IBM, Tokyo Electron and many others – work at Albany Nanotech.
