NSF Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory REU
About the Program:† The NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program at the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory, TUNL, enables students to become directly involved in low-energy experimental nuclear physics research.† TUNL researchers are faculty, staff, and students from the physics departments of NC State University, the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and Duke University.
Program Activities:† Students participate in a ten-week summer program combining research work, lectures, and social activities. Each student is assigned to a research group and works with a professor along with staff and graduate students to complete a well-defined project. When possible, the studentís project involves the use or development of one of our on-site accelerators or target systems, and often contributes to the groupís ongoing experimental program.
TUNL provides a lecture series that is designed for undergraduate students and covers a wide range of topics. Subjects include an introduction to nuclear physics concepts, historical reviews of physics, and the relationship between physics and medicine, art, or society.
Other Information:† Social activities allow for comfortable interaction between undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral research staff, and faculty.
