The Penn State REU in Interdisciplinary Materials Physics is an National Science Foundation sponsored summer research experience for students from all across the country who are majoring in physics, chemistry, materials science, all branches of engineering, etc. who have an interest in theoretical, experimental or computational materials physics and/or interdisciplinary nano-materials research. This REU is jointly hosted by both the Physics Department's NSF REU and the Center for Nanoscale Science (MRSEC) REU. Students will experience the challenge and excitement of a career in research by working closely with one of Penn State's faculty members, together with graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in their research group. Reserarch topics span nanomaterials research, superconductivity, semiconductor physics, 2D materials physics, novel nano-materials synthesis, materials chemistry, 2D nano-material fabrication, and more.
