Times Union: Schumer launches a chip offensive
ALBANY -- U.S. Sen. Charles E. Schumer said Thursday that he is trying to convince the Department of Defense to start making its computer chips at the University at Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering.
Schumer was in Canandaigua to announce a $3 million federal grant to renovate a semiconductor manufacturing center that the NanoCollege owns there. The money will go toward improving 9,400 square feet of clean room space that will be used by a company called Moser Baer to make organic light-emitting diodes, or OLEDs.
