Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC) for Technology Transfer has
awarded the Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography (EUVL) project Excellence
in Technology Transfer. The award is for transferring to industry
a technology that will lead to microprocessors that are tens of
times faster than todays most powerful computer chips and
create memory chips with similar increases in storage capacity.
The computer industry has targeted EUVL as the next-generation lithography
approach to be introduced in 2007 for high-volume manufacturing.
EUVL team is made up of scientists and researchers from Lawrence
Livermore, Lawrence Berkeley, and Sandia national laboratories collaborating
as the Virtual National Laboratory. Under a multiyear Cooperative
Research and Development Agreement, the team has successfully transferred
EUVL technology to the Extreme Ultraviolet Limited Liability Company,
a consortium headed by Intel Corporation that includes Advanced
Micro Devices, IBM, Infineon, Micron Technologies, and Motorola.
members of the EUVL team are Don Sweeney, Livermores
EUV program manager and director of the Virtual National Laboratory,
Jennifer Alameda, Sasa Bajt, Anton Barty, Sherry Baker, Butch
Bradsher, Henry Chapman, Carl Chung, Al Edge, Jim Folta, Layton
Hale, Stefan Hau-Riege, Michael Johnson, Patrick Kearney, Cindy
Larson, Rick Levesque, Paul Mirkarimi, Nhan Nguyen, Gary Otani,
Don Phillion, Jeff Robinson, Mark Schmidt, Frank Snell, Gary Sonnargren,
Regina Soufli, Victor Sperry, Eberhard Spiller, John S. Taylor,
and Chris Walton.
Society of Mexican American Engineers and Scientists (MAES)
recently presented Livermores Frank Robles with its
highest honor, the Medalla de Oro (gold medallion) for his
many years of successful recruitment of promising young MexicanAmerican
scientists and engineers to the Laboratory. In the past seven years,
sixteen of the students Robles helped recruit at MAES conferences
have been hired by the Laboratory as full-time employees.
The Medalla de Oro is given
to members and supporters of MAES who have distinguished themselves
by demonstrating a dedication to serve and to greatness, a kind
of dedication to humankind that carries with it responsibilities
and strict disciplines. In addition to the medallion, a Padrino
Scholarship was presented to a MAES student in Robless name.
Padrino means godfather, and giving this
name to the scholarship symbolizes the societys desire to
award it to build a bridge to the future.

Diversity Program, recently became the deputy leader of the Laboratorys
Employee Relations Office.
former deputy director for Science and Technology and former associate
director of Chemistry and Materials Science, and Craig Smith,
a nuclear engineer and project leader in the Energy and Environment
Directorate, have been named fellows of the American Association
for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

distinguished contributions in developing advanced materials
and superplasticity and in determining the origins and history of
Damascus and other steels and for broad scientific leadership supporting
national security, work he did while at the Laboratory.
who has 30 years of experience in the nuclear and environmental
fields at the Laboratory and in private industry, was named for
his distinguished contributions to the advancement of nuclear
science and technology.
year, a group of peers selects AAAS members to become fellows. This
year, 291 members became fellows in recognition of their efforts
to advance science or foster applications that are deemed scientifically
or socially distinguished.
