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 the area of Radiation-Hardened Microelectronics.  The goal of this summer project wil be to introduce the student 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 student's experience and direction of intrerest. The student will be paired with one or more mentors for technical guidance and support.  The student will paritipate in 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 student will be paired with one or more additional mentors (may include other students/grad students, faculty, and straff, depending on the specific project.
A Brief Research Plan (period is for 10 weeks):
The student will interact with the SCALE student cohort and participate in weekly programming (multi-university, hybrid-virtual).  A project suitable for the student's 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.
