Albany NanoCollege Expands Photoresist Research


Albany's Nano-college is partnering with a huge petrochemical company in a research and development project to upgrade computer chip technology.

The SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering has announced that Korea-based Kumho Petrochemical, Ltd., a global leader in specialty chemicals, has signed an evaluative testing agreement with CNSE that will provide Kumho with access to the CNSE Advanced Resist Center and its suite of leading-edge equipment, known as tools, to benchmark photoresists for the development of next-generation computer chips.

The agreement provides Kumho access to CNSE’s vast infrastructure: CNSE officials say the partnership further solidifies the New-York as the global epicenter for the research, development, and commercialization of technologies and materials that are driving innovation across the world.
