: The Energy Innovation Department at Sandia/CA has an opening for a student internship focusing on materials science research\. This position will involve applying multiple experimental and/or modeling techniques to study plasma\-surface interactions relevant to magnetic fusion energy\. Plasma\-material interactions are considered one of the most complex and challenging issues facing the advancement of fusion as a viable energy source\. Of particular interest to our group is how hydrogen and helium plasma\-exposure creates defects within materials, and how these defects affect hydrogen transport\. Depending on project needs, we envision that the student intern may:
Work with RF\-plasma discharges for plasma\-material interactions studies\.
Develop data analysis routines for low energy ion scattering experiments\.
Analyze Langmuir probe measurements\.
Perform optical spectroscopy characterization of plasmas\.
Design and work with ultra\-high vacuum \(UHV\) instruments\. + Required: The successful candidate must meet the following Sandia Student Intern Requirements: Official acceptance into an accredited university's undergraduate program, full\-time enrollment during the spring term immediately preceding the internship period \(12 credit hours\), a minimum cumulative GPA of 3\.2/4\.0, and the ability to work up to 40 hours per week during the internship duration\. U\.S\. citizenship\.
Completion of undergraduate coursework in materials science, physics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering or related field\. Desired:
Hands\-on experience working in an experimental physics/materials science research laboratory, particularly working with ultra\-high vacuum equipment\.
Prior programming experience with LabView, C\+\+, Mathematica and/or Matlab, as well as familiarity with the Linux operating environment\. Department Description: The Energy Innovation Department is a multidisciplinary team of scientists and engineers working on fundamental scientific research and technology development that support the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions\. Our department leads hydrogen\-in\-materials research supported by DOE's Office of Fusion Energy Sciences\. This work ranges from basic plasma studies \(Discovery Science\) to major efforts in the plasma\-material interactions and fusion nuclear science \(Burning Plasma Science\.\) We have significant collaborations with the major U\.S\. confinement devices \(DIII\-D and NSTX\.\) Other projects within the department encompass a diverse set of topics, including plasma\-materials interactions for magnetic fusion energy, hydrogen energy infrastructure and storage, as well as novel thermal management approaches\. The department is part of the Chemistry, Materials, and Combustion Center at Sandia/California\. This center is home to much of the materials science research at the laboratory, and includes a variety of world\-class surface science and microscopy capabilities\.
