See this announcement - they are still awaiting final funding approvals from Lockheed, but they want to get started on recruiting should the funding come through. This is a great opportunity! Undergraduates who participate will be evaluated by Lockheed Martin for potential job postions in photonics.
Call for CREOL Undergraduate Researchers
A research project entitled “Evaluation of the optical and mechanical properties of chalcogenide fiber” is planned for the Spring 2016 semester at CREOL. Lockheed Martin is funding a program led by Dr Kenneth L Schepler to evaluate the state of the art in chalcogenide fiber durability. Chalcogenide glass fibers will be tested for their ability to transport high-power infrared laser beams. We will measure beam transmission and beam quality as a function of input power in chalcogenide fibers made commercially and at CREOL.
Students interested in applying for up to two undergraduate research positions should meet the following requirements:
· Successfully completed OSE 4520/OSE 4520L Laser Engineering by the end of Fall 2015 semester· UCF GPA of 3.0 or higher· Full-time student working towards a Bachelor of Science degree in Photonic Science and Engineering· Provide CREOL faculty reference
Students will be expected to work 10 hours per week for 17 weeks beginning Spring 2016 semester. Work will be overseen by CREOL faculty and graduate students. Final briefings will be given by students to Lockheed Martin representatives interested in potential new hires.
