Alain E. Kaloyeros is Professor of Nanoscience, Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer, College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany-SUNY, Vice President and Special Advisor to the President, University-wide Economic Innovation and Outreach. Dr. Kaloyeros received his Ph.D. in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 1987. He has authored and coauthored over 150 articles and contributed to 7 books on topics pertaining to the science and technology of nanoelectronics and nano-optoelectronics ultrathin film materials, atomic layer vaporphase deposition processes, and nanoscale x-ray, electron, and photon-based characterization and metrology. He has graduated 31 Ph.D.s and over 50 Masters.
Dr. Kaloyeros holds 13 U.S. patents. He is a past recipient of the NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award, the NSF Research Initiation Award, the Albany Foundation 1995 Academic Laureate Award, the 1997 Center for Economic Growth Enterprise Award, the 1999 Citizen of the University Award, the 2002 Outstanding Inventor Award of the SUNY RF, the R&D 100 Award for one of the Most Technologically Significant Inventions of 2001, the 2003 Excellence in the Pursuit of Knowledge Award of the SUNY Research Foundation, and the 2004 Research Foundation Partnership in Leadership Award. Dr. Kaloyeros was also the recipient of the 2005 Tech Valley Summit MIKE (Mentorship, Innovation, Knowledge, and Entrepreneurship) Award on behalf of the CNSE executive leadership team. He was selected for the 2003, 2005, and 2007 “Tech Valley’s Hot 10,” an annual list of the top 10 movers and shakers in New York’s Capital Region compiled by the Albany-Colonie Chamber of Commerce and the Capital Region media. Dr. Kaloyeros is listed in the Marquis Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, 2006-present; the Academic Keys Who’s Who in Higher Education Administration, 2005-present; and the Academic Keys Who’s Who in Sciences Higher Education, 2004-present. Additionally, Dr. Kaloyeros received the 2008 Children’s Museum of Science and Technology’s Explore*Discover*Imagine award, the 2009 Tech Valley Global Business Network Global Vision Award, the 2010 Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber of Commerce Envoy Salute, and was inducted into the Tech Valley Business Hall of Fame in 2011.
Dr. Kaloyeros has been actively involved in the development and implementation of New York's high tech strategy to become a global leader in the nanotechnology driven economy of the 21st Century. A critical cornerstone of New York's high technology strategy is the establishment of the UAlbany College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering as a truly global resource for research and development (R&D), technology deployment, education, and commercialization for the international nanoelectronics industry. CNSE has generated over $7B in public and private investments, including more than $900M from NYS and over $6B from the federal government and international nanoelectronics industry. The CNSE Albany NanoTech Complex houses major R&D centers involving corporate giants that include IBM, GlobalFoundries, SEMATECH, Toshiba, Samsung, Tokyo Electron, Applied Materials, ASML, Novellus Systems, Vistec Lithography and Atotech, among many others. CNSE's Albany NanoTech consists of over 800,000 square feet of state-of-the-art facilities, including 80,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms that house the only 300mm wafer integrated R&D line in the academic world. Over 2,500 scientists, researchers, students, faculty and staff from more than 250 global corporate partners and leading research universities currently work on site. An expansion now underway is projected to increase the size of the CNSE 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. Once completed, the CNSE Albany NanoTech Complex is expected to house over 3,750 scientists, researchers, and engineers from CNSE and global corporations.
