Dynamic Compression Summer School
Institute for Shock Physics - Washington State University | Lemont, Illinois, United State of America (USA)
Opportunity Type: Research Experience for Undergrads (REU)
Current Program: Bachelor's
Topics: Materials, Physical Sciences
Remote Position: No
UNDERSTANDING MATERIALS AT EXTREME CONDITIONS JULY 30-AUGUST 4, 2023 To be held at the Dynamic Compression Sector in the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory, Lemont, IL. Accepting upper-level undergraduates and first year graduate students currently registered at a four year college/university and considering further studies in the fields of physics, chemistry, materials science, geo/planetary science, solid mechanics, or related field. Enrollment is limited to 25 students. Program support includes lodging, meals, and a stipend up to $500 for transportation costs. To apply, visit shock.wsu.edu/dcss. Dynamic compression experiments subject materials to unique thermodynamic conditions – very large compressions, high temperatures, and large deformations – on short time scales resulting in a rich array of physical and chemical changes. The four and a half days of activities will introduce students to the scientific fundamentals, contemporary research activities including informal discussions, and career opportunities within this exciting field. Curriculum: Introduction to dynamic compression science and the fundamentals of matter at high pressure. Explore opportunities available in dynamic compression science within the Shock Wave Academic Partnership. Receive an overview of career opportunities in dynamic compression science by speakers from Lawrence Livermore, Los Alamos, and Sandia National Laboratories. Experience hands-on learning and discover the applications of dynamic compression to address scientific problems across multiple disciplines. Tour the state-of-the-art facilities at the Dynamic Compression Sector, the Advanced Photon Source, and Argonne National Laboratory. The Dynamic Compression Summer School is sponsored by the Shock Wave Academic Partnership (SWAP). Learn more at shock.wsu.edu/collaborations/.
