Students Explore Integrated Photonics through Summer Internships at AIM Photonics

Education, Photonics, Workforce

While many college and university students are beginning to wrap up their long summer breaks spent relaxing at the beach, hiking the mountains, or even touring overseas, seven dedicated PhD, graduate and undergraduate students from SUNY Poly, RPI, University of Rochester, Siena College, and WPI were all busy catching their collective breath last week as they completed their summer internships at AIM Photonics.

After spending 12 weeks this summer working in Albany, New York on advanced technologies that support the U.S. integrated photonics manufacturing ecosystem, the AIM Photonics interns proudly shared their research results with fellow students, mentors, engineers, faculty members from SUNY Poly and the University at Albany, as well as semiconductor industry professionals during a poster session held at the Albany Nanotech Complex on Friday, August 4.
