Description: The National Science Foundation (NSF) annually supports over 400 sites nationwide in a range of technical areas to offer undergraduates an opportunity to "experience" the research environment with the goal of increasing future participation in graduate school programs.

The College of Optics & Photonics Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) programs in optics and lasers offer student research experiences that cover a range of topics in both science and engineering. Topic areas include:

solid state laser materials growth & spectroscopy
high energy/short pulse laser development
laser produced plasmas
optical signal processing
optical switching circuits
UCF-based REU participants will take specially designed short courses in Optics, Lasers and Interaction of Light with Matter. Other activities include weekly seminars, industrial visits, a course in Ethics in Research, and "round table" discussions between the REU participants and organizers. Some students will have the possibility of attending a national laser & optics conference.

Participants in the NSF-sponsored College of Optics & Photonics International REU in Optics, Lasers, and Optical Materials will carry out a similar research experience in a world-renown facility in Europe. Students in this program will spend 12 weeks in a French, German or Irish laboratory blending high quality scientific research within a foreign culture.
Stipend: 5,000
