Duffield Hall Space and Reservation System
Duffield Hall, named for Cornell Engineering alumnus David Duffield '62 EE, is one of the country's most sophisticated research and teaching facilities for nanoscale science and engineering. It supports research and instruction in advanced materials processing and electronic, photonic, microelectromechanical, and biotechnology devices. The facility allows the university to bring together many of the various nanotechnology and materials-development groups that previously worked independently in various parts of the campus. It includes a large atrium that provides a space where faculty and students can interact in a relaxed, attractive environment, particularly during the winter months.
