REU

Hele Shaw

A Hele-Shaw system (consisting of two glass plates separated by a small gap) was used by University of Chicago MRSEC researchers, Sidney Nagel and Heinrich Jaeger and their research groups, to explore the zero-order-surface-tension properties of granular "fluids."

Research Experiences for Undergraduates

Our REU participants are selected from a nationwide pool. Highly selective, with a 10% acceptance rate, this program has provided us with a cohort of participants who benefit from the research experience, yet can simultaneously further our primary mission of research. We see this reflected in the significant number of REU student co-authored publications, resulting from their summer research efforts. Of the REU students enrolled since 1995, ~75% have gone on to graduate studies in fields related to materials science or expressed an intent to apply upon completion of their undergraduate degrees.
