REU NSF Engineering Research Center for Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) Science and Technology

Since the fall of 2003, over 200 undergraduates from over 30 different institutions across the US and Puerto Rico have contributed to the EUV ERC’s research thrusts. Undergraduate students collaborate with Center faculty and graduate students on current research projects. A successful research experience instills confidence in undergraduates who may be uncertain about their suitability for graduate school. It also enhances their competitiveness for admission to strong graduate programs and for national fellowships. During the Summer Program, as a complement to the research work, we also provide ample opportunities for professional development through participation in seminars, symposia, workshops, and the annual EUV ERC Retreat. Some of these activities link together its three campuses through teleconferencing.
The 2014 EUV ERC REU program will run from June 2nd through August 8th at all 3 locations: The University of California at Berkeley, The University of Colorado at Boulder and Colorado State, Fort Collins. Summer projects at each site are different depending on the research and engineering expertise of the Primary Investigator (PI) that runs the laboratory but the results of each project contribute to the overall research and engineering goals of the EUV ERC. Applicants are encouraged to state their preference for location in their personal essay.
UC Berkeley: Dr. Steve Leone is a Professor in the Chemistry and Physics Departments.
