Cornell Connection

Harrick Plasma frequently works with Entrepreneurship at Cornell to hire student interns for summer positions. The company has used facilities at the Cornell Center for Materials Research (CCMR) and participated in CCMR's Industrial Collaboration Program (ICP). Harrick Plasma products have been purchased by Cornell researchers and a plasma cleaner is available as a shared instrument at the Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility (CNF). Several of the company's technical staff are Cornell graduates.
