REU 01:  Students, Mentors and Final Reports

REU/OSU is a program of research experience in physics for undergraduates. All interested undergraduates are invited to apply for this 10 week summer program of research engagement in the Physics Department of OSU in Columbus, Ohio.

INTERNSHIPS with research groups in Astrophysics, Nuclear, High Energy, Condensed Matter, Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics. Students will work on projects in such areas as chaos in fluids, big bang nucleosynthesis, High-Tc superconductivity, heavy ion collision detectors, and many other projects spanning the diverse interests of a comprehensive research department.

TUTORIALS: are held each year in a variety of areas. In recent years this areas have included: Mathematica computational skill, Tex and Latex, Shop Safety and Practice, and Presentational Skills.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS: You must be a US citizen or permanent resident enrolled in an undergraduate degree program in physics or engineering physics. Members of groups under-represented in Physics are especially encouraged to apply.

STIPENDS will support travel costs of $400, a single room in an OSU dorm, a weekly board allowance of $78, and in addition a weekly stipend of $300, totaling $4180.
