AFTER YEARS OF LEADING THE CHARGE, SCHUMER ANNOUNCES LONG-AWAITED ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS PERMIT WILL BE SIGNED, SEALED AND DELIVERED THIS WEEK FOR THE MARCY NANO MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR COMPUTER CHIP MA
July 25, 2014
Office of the Senator Charles E. Schumer, U.S Government has issued the following news release: Today, U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer announced that, after working for years to secure federal wetlands permits for Mohawk Valley EDGE, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will approve the project and issue the wetland permit to EDGE this Friday. This will now allow Mohawk Valley EDGE and the permit end-user, the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE), to begin developing and constructing a state-of-the-art computer chip manufacturing facility that could generate over a thousand jobs. This manufacturing facility will complement the nano-science research and development conducted at SUNY IT, which is located adjacent to the site. Schumer led the push for the USACE to approve Mohawk Valley EDGE’s long sought wetlands permit. Schumer explained that, now, CNSE, SUNY IT and EDGE can begin working together to make this chip fabrication manufacturing plant a reality and bring thousands of new, skilled, well-paying manufacturing jobs to the Syracuse region.

New Kind of Photoresist Needed to Extend Moore's Law
July 24, 2014
The Optical Society has issued the following news release: Over the years, computer chips have gotten smaller thanks to advances in materials science and manufacturing technologies. This march of progress, the doubling of transistors on a microprocessor roughly every two years, is called Moore's Law. But there's one component of the chip-making process in need of an overhaul if Moore's law is to continue: the chemical mixture called photoresist. Similar to film used in photography, photoresist, also just called resist, is used to lay down the patterns of ever-shrinking lines and features on a chip. Now, in a bid to continue decreasing transistor size while increasing computation and energy efficiency, chip-maker Intel has partnered with researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (Berkeley Lab) to design an entirely new kind of resist. And importantly, they have done so by characterizing the chemistry of photoresist, crucial to further improve performance in a systematic way. The researchers believe their results could be easily incorporated by companies that make resist, and find their way into manufacturing lines as early as 2017.
