Albany opening new lithography center

Jan. 30, 2006 — The University at Albany College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering will be the site of yet another research and development center for the microchip industry, it was announced Friday. The new SEMATECH Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography Resist Test Center will have an operating budget of approximately $20 million through 2008 and house more than $30 million in extreme ultraviolet exposure, test, support, and metrology tools.

The new center builds on the partnership, originally announced by Gov. George E. Pataki in 2002, that SEMATECH selected New York for its International SEMATECH North operations, and will complement the programs of the recently announced University at Albany Institute for Nanoelectronics Discovery and Exploration (INDEX). SEMATECH is providing funding for the center. SEMATECH’s American, European, and Pacific Rim member companies will locate researchers and engineers on site.
