Albany, NY - Thirty-eight undergraduate students who have spent the summer doing nanotechnology research at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany – including 30 New York state residents who hail from the Capital Region, Hudson Valley, Finger Lakes, Long Island, and New York City – showcased their findings August 8 at a public poster presentation that is the capstone of CNSE’s 2012 Summer Internship Program.
The pioneering hands-on program gives students a unique opportunity to engage in innovative nanotechnology research projects as a means of supporting careers in nanoscience, nanoengineering, nanobioscience and the nanotechnology industry.
The largest class ever to participate in CNSE’s prestigious Summer Internship Program, the students represented a variety of academic backgrounds and came from higher education institutions that include a number of SUNY schools – Albany, Binghamton, Buffalo, Geneseo, Plattsburgh and Stony Brook – along with Boston University, Boston College, Cornell University, Clarkson University, Dartmouth College, Hamilton College, the University of Maryland, Siena College, and Vassar College, among others.

About CNSE. The UAlbany CNSE is the first college in
the world dedicated to education, research, development and deployment
in the emerging disciplines of nanoscience, nanoengineering,
nanobioscience and nanoeconomics. With more than $14 billion in
high-tech investments, CNSE represents the world’s most advanced
university-driven research enterprise, offering students a one-of-a-kind
academic experience and providing over 300 corporate partners with
access to an unmatched ecosystem for leading-edge R&D and
commercialization of nanoelectronics and nanotechnology innovations.
CNSE’s footprint spans upstate New York, including its Albany NanoTech
Complex, an 800,000-square-foot megaplex with the only fully-integrated,
300mm wafer, computer chip pilot prototyping and demonstration line
within 85,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms. More than 2,600
scientists, researchers, engineers, students and faculty work here,
from companies including IBM, Intel, GlobalFoundries, SEMATECH, Samsung,
TSMC, Toshiba, Applied Materials, Tokyo Electron, ASML and Novellus
Systems. An expansion now underway, part of which will house the world’s
first Global 450mm Consortium, will add nearly 500,000 square feet of
next-generation infrastructure, an additional 50,000 square feet of
Class 1 capable cleanrooms, and more than 1,000 scientists, researchers
and engineers from CNSE and global corporations. In addition, CNSE’s
Solar Energy Development Center in Halfmoon provides a prototyping and
demonstration line for next-generation CIGS thin-film solar cells.
CNSE’s Smart Systems Technology and Commercialization Center of
Excellence (STC) in Rochester offers state-of-the-art capabilities for
MEMS fabrication and packaging. CNSE also co-founded and manages
operations at the Computer Chip Commercialization Center at SUNYIT in
Utica and is a co-founder of the Nanotechnology Innovation and
Commercialization Excelerator in Syracuse. For information, visit www.cnse.albany.edu.
