Description:
The Physics and Astronomy Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program is funded by the National Science Foundation to support twelve highly-qualified students to undertake supervised research projects in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, for a period of about 10 weeks each summer. Departmental faculty conduct research in diverse experimental and theoretical areas, including Astronomy & Astrophysics, Condensed Matter Physics, High Energy Physics, Plasma and Laser Physics, and Quantum Optics. Each summer, the Department's research effort involves approximately 20 undergraduate students, in addition to approximately 120 graduate students, 35 postdoctoral research associates, and 30 regular faculty members. Much of the research performed by past undergraduate research assistants has been published in scientific journals. Many students have also presented their work at national conferences and undergraduate research symposia at the University of Rochester.
