Center for Advanced Technology in Nanomaterials and Nanoelectronics (CATN2)
The Center for Advanced Technology in Nanomaterials and Nanoelectronics (CATN2) at SUNY Polytechnic Institute has concentrated its efforts on establishing and nurturing a next-generation, nanotechnology-enabled open innovation ecosystem that targets support for start-ups in the research and development phase; supplier growth in the pilot-prototype demonstration phase; and business attraction in the manufacturing scale-up phase, all with an eye toward catalyzing high-technology economic growth.
CATN2 has a recognized focus on utilizing advanced nanofabrication capabilities to enable the commercialization of innovative nanotechnologies, including device derivatives, compound semiconductors, micro-electro-mechanical-systems (MEMS), and roll-to-roll photovoltaics.
SUNY Poly’s CATN2 offers unmatched technology transitioning capabilities for electronics, communications, defense, clean energy, biomedical, and smart cities applications, among many others, by leveraging the world-class tools and infrastructure at SUNY Poly’s $24 billion NanoTech Complex. This 1.3 million-square-foot megaplex with the only fully-integrated, 300mm
and 450mm wafer computer chip pilot prototyping and demonstration lines
within 135,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms is supported by an open innovation business model that has successfully attracted leading small, medium and large-sized companies from around the world.
