Abstract: The African School of Physics (ASP) consists of series of activities to support the academic growth of African students and Early Career researchers. One such activity is the short-term research visits program where alumni of ASP spend 3-6 months at BNL for research. Nine ASP alumni came to BNL between July and December 2019. The program resumed in 2022 when 6 ASP alumni came to BNL for the period of August 2022 to February 2023. The 3rd cohort of 6 came to BNL for the period June 2023 - April 2024. They are placed within different research groups and assigned research advisors according to their majors and physics interests. This program is supported by DOE, the NPP DEIA Council and the departments and research groups that host participants.In this talk, we have short presentations by 4 alumni (cohort of 2023) on the work they have done during their stay at BNL: 1. Gloria Katunge Maithya (University of Nairobi, Kenya), EDG, "Quality Control (QC) Testing and Data Analysis of DUNE Detector Cold Electronics". 2. Aissata Ly (Cheikh Anta Diop University, Dakar, Senegal), Omega Group, "Quality control of ATLAS ITk stave alignment during assembly". 3. Fatima Bendebba (Hassan II University of Casablanca, Morocco), Omega Group, "Search for Higgs boson pair production in 2b + 2l + MET final states in pp collisions at sqrt(??) = 13 TeV with the ATLAS Experiment and Module Testing of the ATLAS Inner Tracker (ITK)". 4. Augustin Sokpor (University of Lome, Togo), Omega Group, "Development of equipment and setup aimed at testing novel AC-LGAD silicon detector".
