SUNY Poly's Albany NanoTech Complex is located within a 1,650,000 square foot complex that houses the most advanced 200mm/300mm wafer facilities in the academic world, including over 140,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms equipped with 300mm wafer processing tools. The complex incorporates state-of-the-art, R&D and prototype manufacturing infrastructure for nano/microelectronics, nanophotonics and optoelectronics, nano/micro systems (MEMS) and nanopower science and technology.
SUNY Poly also operates the Smart Cities Technology Innovation Center (SCiTI) at Kiernan Plaza in Albany, the Solar Energy Development Center in Halfmoon, the Children’s Museum of Science and Technology (CMOST) in Troy, the Central New York Hub for Emerging Nano Industries in Syracuse, the Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center (STC) in Canandaigua, and the Photovoltaic Manufacturing and Technology Development Facility in Rochester where SUNY Poly also leads the American Institute for Manufacturing Integrated Photonics. SUNY Poly founded and manages the Computer Chip Commercialization Center (Quad-C) at its Utica location and also manages the $500 million New York Power Electronics Manufacturing Consortium, with nodes in Albany and Rochester, as well as the Buffalo High-Tech Manufacturing Innovation Hub at RiverBend, Buffalo Information Technologies Innovation and Commercialization Hub, and Buffalo Medical Innovation and Commercialization Hub.
Faculty and students have access to leading edge tools in metrology, lithography including EUV lithography, front-end-of-line and back-end-of-line processing. Qualified instructors and trained technicians help students and faculty master the tools and equipment and carry out their own experiments.
