Nanotechnology Plant to Open in St. Petersburg

As Russia continues to court international participation in Skolkovo, its newly planned “Silicon Valley” near Moscow, Russia’s Corporation of Nanotechnogies, RUSNANO, announced that groundbreaking high-tech production would soon commence 300 miles to the north.  Russian-based Connector Optics finalized plans to construct a nanotech facility in the Parnas industrial area of St. Petersburg, scheduled to launch in the spring of 2011.  The plant will be the first of its kind to open in Russia, and will feature clean rooms equipped with molecular beam epitaxy, nanotechnology used in the production of optical interconnect devices for supercomputers, data centers, and optic and USB cables.
