RIMSE Spring Break Experience

RIMSE Spring Break Experience: A brief hands-on introduction to materials science research for undergraduate and high school students

UC San Diego MRSEC RIMSE Spring Break Research Experience: 2023

A brief introduction to laboratory research experience for UC San Diego undergraduates and local area high school students who are interested in materials science.  This program is meant to introduce students to the RIMSE summer research opportunities in the UC San Diego MRSEC, and to prepare students to engage in more in-depth research experiences, both within MRSEC (UC San Diego MRSEC RIMSE Summer Schools), and the UC San Diego research community at large.  In 2023 the Spring Break RIMSE will focus on silicon nanotechnology in the Silicon Nanomaterials Research Laboratory run by Prof. Sailor.

Activities include

  • Safety training (general safety training required by the university, as well as laboratory-specific training
  • Hands-on experiments preparing silicon quantum dots and photonic crystals, including some basic background lectures
  • Shadowing of postdoctoral researchers and graduate students

Dates: Mon, Mar 27-Thurs Mar 30, 2023

Time: 9am-noon, 1-4 each day
