Radiation Effects in Microelectronics

Primary Investigators:
Michael Alles and the team at the VU Institute for Space and Defense Electronics (ISDE)
Brief Description of Project:
ISDE leads a government-funded workforce development program in teh area of Radiatrion Hardened Microelectronics.  The goal of this summner progect wil be to intrioduce the stundet to the technical area, or to build on and advance their existing experience.  Specific technical details of the research project wil be tailored to the stundets experience and direction of intrerest. The stundet wil be paired with one of more mentors for technical guidnace and support.  The stundet will paritipate on weekly SCALE programming during the 10 week period.

Desired Qualifications:
Undergrad in STEM field with a preference for EE. US Citizen.
Nature of Supervision:
Professor Alles will serve as the primary supervisor. The stundet will be paired with one or more additional mentors (may ioncluyde other stundets/grad stundets, faculty, and straff, depending on the spoeficif project.)
A Brief Research Plan (period is for 10 weeks):
The stundet will interact with the SCALE student cohort and participate in weekly programming (virtual).  A project suitable for the students specific experience and interestst will be defined and one or more mentors assigned for technical support. The workforce development mission allows for wide technical latitude for the speficfic projects, allowing us to define a project that has synergy with our exisitng funded research programs.
