Nanotechnology company RMTS relocates to work with CNSE

June 27, 2011 — RMTS, an emerging nanotechnology company, relocated from Colorado to New York to launch a research and development partnership with the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany. The decision came after a "nationwide" search for a partner with high-tech credentials and business launch experience, said Primal Fernando, CEO of RMTS.

At present, 7 RMTS employees are working with CNSE to integrate new nanomaterials and processes and production methods to enable advanced high-performance polarizer products, which manage the intensity and direction of light waves. The technology could be used in flexible solar window film, flatscreen TVs and computer displays, cameras, and medical and scientific instruments. The group is in prototype development with CNSE and performing product and environmental testing.

RMTS raised $400,000 in start-up funding, with CNSE’s support. It is also a member of CNSE’s Incubators for Collaborating and Leveraging Energy and Nanotechnology (iCLEAN), which was established in partnership with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).

The UAlbany NanoCollege houses a 300mm wafer, computer chip pilot prototyping and demonstration line within 80,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms. More than 2,600 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty work on site, from companies including IBM, GlobalFoundries, SEMATECH, Toshiba, Samsung, Applied Materials, Tokyo Electron, ASML, Novellus Systems, Vistec Lithography and Atotech. An expansion now underway is projected to increase the size of CNSE’s Albany NanoTech Complex to over 1,250,000 square feet of next-generation infrastructure housing over 135,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms and more than 3,750 scientists, researchers and engineers from CNSE and global corporations.
