It’s a New Year and with that comes a new blog look!
To better tell the whole Applied Materials story in a more dynamic and interactive way, we've redesigned the blog. The new blog will provide readers with a richer and more vibrant environment by featuring highly visual images and videos. These will provide a glimpse into the various roles Applied Materials plays as a leader in the semiconductor, solar and display industries as well as a socially responsible company.
I want to invite you to a special Applied Materials blog event on Twitter featuring the senior director for Energy Policy and Market Development at Applied Materials, Cathy Boone. Topics she will discuss include solar energy policy, jobs and myths. The Twitter chat is on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific; 1:00 p.m. Eastern and will last for one hour.
We’re getting excited for this year’s SEMICON West, the flagship annual event for the global microelectronics industry. We have enjoyed building an online community through the discussion of innovation and the ideas that are shaping the world as we know it. As we’ve built this community, we’ve created several ways to connect, engage and interact with Applied Materials.
This blog post highlights the various Applied Materials Social Media Communities. Please take the time to check out the different channels and we’ll post up-to-date news and information about our activities around the show through the following methods.
Scientists and inventors may not be the first things that come to mind with the upcoming Saint Patrick’s Day holiday. The day is usually associated with four-leaf clovers, leprechauns, performers or food and most importantly green beer. It turns out Ireland has a significant scientific heritage that has produced many top inventors, scientists and innovators who have made great contributions in pioneering new technologies. In honor of the upcoming holiday, Applied Materials would like to take this opportunity to recognize and honor some major Irish figures in the history of science.
At Applied Materials, circles are nothing new to us…although here we call them Wafers. And because the internet and finding useful information can be as complex as designing, building and depositing on a wafer, we thought we’d provide some help on how to keep up with Applied through the platforms that you access and interact with online every day. Allow me to introduce ourselves, or rather the ‘Applied Materials Social Media Communities.’ Here you’ll find a list of our online communities with official links to help you get started and for easy access. I invite you to ‘Like Us’, ‘Tweet Us,’ ‘Connect with Us,’ ‘Circle Us,’ and ‘Visit Us.’
Today is significant for two reasons: first, it’s Applied Materials’ 44th anniversary—we’ve come a long way since 1967—working with amazing people, developing great products and creating an innovative culture; and secondly, it’s now official —Applied Materials and Varian Semiconductor Equipment Associates have become one company, combining the best of each to help the world’s leading chip makers solve the challenges of today’s increasingly more complex transistors.
In recognition of the summer solstice, the day the sun shines in the northern hemisphere for the longest period of time all year, Applied Materials’ president of Solar, Dr. Charlie Gay is hosting an “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) thread on Reddit NOW. Join us.
Dr. Charles Gay, President of Applied Materials’ Solar division, discusses when we'll get to $1/watt, solar efficiency improvement opportunities and how Applied Materials is looking at the solar technology roadmap. This interview with the Daily Energy Report is the second of a two part series.
