DMSE Faculty host summer undergraduate researchers

From simulating the physics of spinning magnetic particles to fabricating new materials for infrared chemical sensing, MIT Materials Research Laboratory summer researchers will challenge themselves to learn new skills and develop new scientific insights.

A diverse group of top-performing undergraduates from across the U.S. and Puerto Rico as well as local community college students and teachers, these interns will spend the summer doing research in MIT faculty labs with support from the National Science Foundation’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) and Research Experience for Teachers (RET) programs, the NSF CAREER award, the AIM Photonics Academy, and the MRL Collegium.

Professor Caroline A. Ross discusses isolators that combine light and magnetism to integrate photonic circuits into computer chips during a presentation to the MIT MRL Summer Scholars.
