The CRISP Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) as a Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) program.
The goal of the CRISP REU program is to offer high-quality, state-of-the-art research experiences, enrichment activities and professional development events to undergraduates. Current research topics range from thin film growth and characterization to friction and manipulation at the atomic level with projects involving computation, simulation, fabrication, characterization and image processing. Materials systems included semiconductors, dielectrics, optical materials and bio-materials.
Program Dates: June 5 – July 31, 2017
