Based in Armonk, N.Y., and ETH Zurich, a science and engineering university in Switzerland, have opened the Binnig and Rohrer Nanotechnology Center on the campus of IBM Research – Zurich. The facility is the centerpiece of a 10-year partnership in nanoscience between the organizations. There, scientists will research nanoscale structures and devices to advance energy and information technologies. Offering noise-free labs and a large cleanroom, the building represents an investment of $60 million in infrastructure costs and an additional $30 million for tooling and equipment.

A sub-field of photonics that pertains to an electronic device that responds to optical power, emits or modifies optical radiation, or utilizes optical radiation for its internal operation. Any device that functions as an electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical transducer. Electro-optic often is used erroneously as a synonym.
