PFC & JQI Summer Students

Dalia Ornelas from Universidad de Gaunajuato, JQI

Dalia Ornelas from Universidad de Guanajuato worked in a lab that is building a hybrid quantum system. Here she is characterizing an optical fiber using diffraction.

The Physics Frontier Center at JQI takes an active role in encouraging high-school students and college undergraduates to participate in various aspects of PFC research projects during the summer months. In 2010 and 2011, nearly 20 such students gained invaluable, hands-on experience at laboratories and other research facilities at the University of Maryland (UMD) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). They were typically supervised by graduate students, but also interacted with numerous group members, including JQI Fellows and senior scientists.

At UMD, students worked in half a dozen labs in both the Physics building and the Computer and Space Sciences building, which houses the JQI administrative offices and many faculty offices. At NIST, they can be found in the Physics building and the Advanced Measurement Laboratory Complex.
