Summer 2014 is the fifth summer for the Physics & Astronomy REU program. We have 16 participants this year, selected from more than 300 applications; our participants represent college and universities of all sizes from across the U.S. The participants will work on projects that are active parts of their mentors’ research in astronomy nuclear physics, gravity and cosmology, neutrinos, condensed matter, and quantum science. The REU participants will tour the CAMD synchrotron and LIGO-Livingston facilities, and participate in weekly seminars by department faculty. Stay tuned for more details about what these students accomplish this summer.
