IU Summer REU Research Projects

Projects are located at Swain Hall West, the home of the Deparment of Physics or the Indiana University Center for Exploration of Energy and Matter.

Projects based at Swain Hall Projects based at IUCEEM
  • Biophysics
    The Biophysics group is currently investigating neurophysics, development, and models of cellular communication.
  • Condensed Matter Physics
    The Condensed Matter group focuses on novel materials, the behavior of waves in artificial structures and disordered materials as well as uses of neutrons for materials research (LENS).
  • Elementary Particle Theory
    The Theory group is currently focused on lattice guage calculations of QCD, violations of fundamental symmetries such as CPT, and new frontiers of particle physics.
  • Elementary Particle Experiment
    Members of the High Energy group are playing key roles in the D0 collaboration at Fermilab and ATLAS at CERN, and leading the GlueX/Hall D collaboration at Jefferson National Lab.
  • Accelerator Physics
    The Accelerator physics research programs of S.Y. Lee and Mark Hess investigates physics crucial to the improvement of current and future particle accelerators.
  • Low Energy Neutron Source (LENS)
    LENS is developing a neutron source for use in materials science, biophysics, neutron instrumentation, and fundamental research.
  • Medical Physics (mostly at the Midwest Proton Radiotherapy Institute, MPRI)
  • Nuclear Chemistry
    The Nuclear Chemistry group studies heavy-ion reaction dynamics at intermediate energy.
  • Nuclear Physics Experiment
    The Nuclear Experimental group is currently studying fundamental neutron physics, neutron instrumentation, and neutrino oscillations in addition to playing a major role in the STAR collaboration at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Lab.
  • Nuclear Physics Theory
    The Nuclear Theory group conducts a broad range of studies of models of nuclear structure and dynamics.
