From The Albany Times-Union: A massive building is rising at the University at Albany's nanotech complex amid a shroud of secrecy. The project is part of a major push by the semiconductor industry to develop the next generation of computer chip manufacturing. School officials have refused to discuss the project even as the frame of the complex takes shape after months of work. The school never held a groundbreaking, released design details or disclosed the cost of the project -- or its source of funding. Renderings and other documents show a 500,000-square-foot structure that will nearly double the size of the existing College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering campus.
