2023 CNF REU Program

During the summer of 2023, the Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility hosted a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (CNF REU) Program. We hired seven undergraduates + one graduate student from Japan! They are pictured in the banner above, in alpha order by last name (photos mostly provided by the interns).

They are pictured below too, in the CNF cleanroom -- Toko Ogata, Daniel Harrison, Paul Bloom, Sam Averitt, Amara Taddeo, Astrid Dzotcha, Bryan Kim (in back), and Naomi Naranjo (photo by Ron Olson) -- and their final reports are below along with their convocation videos. The full photo album will be posted soon!

Also during the summer of 2023, CNF hosted the Global Quantum Leap International Research Training Experience (GQL IRTE) Program (three interns) and the second year program for NNCI REUs, the International Research Experiences for Undergraduates (CNF iREU) Program (five interns). More on these international programs can be found here. All their final reports are in this booklet....
