Research Experience for Undergraduates

The Columbia MRSEC REU is a 10-week summer research experience for undergraduate students in all years, who are interested in gaining hands-on practical experience and researching with Columbia PIs.

The interest topics of research are:

  • Molecular Cluster Materials - Synthesis
  • Molecular Cluster Materials - Characterization
  • 2D Material Heterostructures - Low-T Physics
  • 2D Material Heterostructures - Electronic and Optical Devices
  • Materials Theory
  • Nanoscale Optics
  • Nanoelectronics
  • Nano/Bio Systems

During the program, all REU students will be involved in workshops, industry visits, recreational activities, weekly seminars, and other activities. It also includes training in laboratory practices and safety, shared materials characterization tools, and scientific writing/presentations. Students attend a weekly research seminar series by Columbia, CCNY and ASRC faculty, and present results at a daylong symposium at the end of the program.
