The SURE program goal is to provide undergraduate students in the Physical Sciences and Engineering the opportunity to perform hands-on experiments in a world class research organization. Students will have the opportunity to undertake experimental investigations of condensed matter phenomena at extreme conditions. Using state-of-the-art equipment and diagnostics, material response is examined at different length scales in real time during shock wave and static high-pressure experiments. Understanding condensed matter response at conditions relevant to dynamic loading (shock wave or shockless compression) and static high pressure has been central to advances in fundamental science and modern technology.
Participants must be currently registered at a four year college and have achieved either sophomore or junior standing in physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering, or materials science. In addition, students must be U.S. citizens or have U.S. permanent residency status.
