CLASSE Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

[ Overview | Logistics | List of Projects | Previous Reports | Apply ]

We anticipate that the National Science Foundation (NSF) will renew our grant for a Research Experience for Undergraduates program in the Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator-based Sciences and Education (CLASSE), which encompasses the Laboratory for Elementary-Particle Physics (LEPP), the Cornell High-Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS), and the Energy Recovery Linac (ERL) project. Details for the 2015 program will be similar to the 2014 program.

Under this program, approximately ten to fifteen science and engineering students from around the country will be invited to participate in research at the Laboratory. In addition there are several other REU programs on campus with whom we share housing and programs.

The ten-week program will start Monday, June 1, 2015 and end Friday, August 7, 2015. In addition to participation in research, the program will include informal seminars, formal lectures, tours of research facilities, social and recreational events, and a forum at summer's end in which participants present the results of their research.
