Description: 

This program supports ten to twelve highly-qualified students to undertake supervised research projects in the Institute of Optics, for a period of 10 weeks each summer. Departmental faculty conduct research in diverse experimental and theoretical areas of optics and engineering. Some of the research performed by past undergraduate research assistants has been published in scientific journals. Students may also present their work at national conferences and undergraduate research symposia at the University of Rochester. Over the summer research period, participants attend a series of informal seminars covering research topics and receiving assistance on how to prepare for graduate school. Students whose projects are primarily experimental are encouraged to attend mini-courses in electronics and in machine shop techniques. The core research experience takes place in the context of research groups working at the University's research facilities.
