: We are seeking a Student Intern R&D \- Undergraduate Summer The student intern will be working with a staff scientist and technician to collect and calibrate time resolved spectra on the Z Pulsed Power Machine\. Job responsibilities will include measurement and calibration of Planck continuum emission and absorption line spectra in the visible region of the electromagnetic spectrum\. The data is used to determine the time\-dependent temperature and density of plasmas associated with a variety of Z experiments\. Examples of experiments are Magnetized Liner Inertial Fusion \(MagLIF\), Planetary Impact Material Science, Gas Giant \(Saturn and Jupiter\) Planetary Science and the characterization of the electrical power flow surfaces of the Z machine itself\. This position will entail setting up experiments, making fiber\-optic probes, performing basic calibrations and applying those calibrations to data\. Results will be reported in the form of a poster at the end of the internship and possibly a conference paper\.
