Below are the AMTech projects that received funding in NYS:
University of Rochester, The New York Photonics Manufacturing Initiative, $498,430.
The group will work closely with the National Photonics Initiative to develop a national technology roadmap for photonics. It will focus on new technologies and the manufacturing challenges “that, if solved, can strengthen the competitiveness of domestic photonics companies and bring photonics manufacturing back to the United States,” says NIST. The United States was once the leader in photonics; yet now it only produces 10 percent of the global output of photonics components such as fiberoptics, photovoltaics, lasers, digital imaging and flat panel displays — all of which are U.S. inventions
The Finger Lakes Regional Economic Council (FLREDC) today announced that Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) will purchase a metal organic vapor phase epitaxy (MOVPE) system for growth of novel materials, thin film crystals and nanostructures. The MOVPE system, which represents a major upgrade to the RIT cleanroom user facility, allowing this facility to become competitive on a regional and national scale, will be available to research teams across multiple disciplines, including optics and photonics industries. RIT will be the only university in New York State with this system, and will provide essential resources and new capabilities in multiple nanotechnology applications for regional academic and industrial partners.
