Summer Research Program in Solid State and Materials Chemistry for Undergraduate Students and College FacultyShiou-Jyh Hwu, Clemson University, DMR-0303450

The PI and co-PI’s (Profs. A. Wilkinson and H. zur Loye) organized the 21st annual summer research program in Solid State and Materials Chemistry. A total of 20 participants (including four faculty) were admitted to the 10-week program. As part of the research training, participants were gathered at Clemson for a week-long tutorial at the beginning of the research and asked to give a 20-minute oral presentation and to write a 10-page report at the end based on their summer research activities.

During the tutorial, a workshop was offered by Profs. Mike Condren and George Lisensky. The participants were given hands-on opportunities to learn fundamental concepts and techniques pertinent to solid state chemistry research.

Education:

The program provides an interdisci-plinary forum for learning about solid state chemistry, including the impact of materials synthesis and development and the application of science and technology. Of 20 participants (4 faculty, 16 undergraduates) in 2005, 6 are female, 14 male (including 5 minorities - 2 Hispanics and 3 African Americans). Over 15 research laboratories jointly hosted the research participants. This education and outreach program in solid state and materials chemistry is enthusiastically endorsed by the solid state chemistry community. It is evident that there is a significant impact on both students and faculty participating in the program.

Outreach:

The program arranged a tour to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory during the tutorial. Participants were introduced to the opportunities, missions and facilities at the High Temperature Materials lab and Spallation Neutron Source.
