: The Ion Beam Laboratory has summer graduate student opportunities in multiple areas\. They include: + Nanomechanics of materials \-the goal is fundamental understanding of deformation mechanisms in nanograined materials+ Novel quantum devices \- the research goal is to design, fabricate, and test single photon sources in diamond+ Radiation effects on materials+ Research projects in the Ion Beam Laboratory The student will work closely with technical staff to design, perform, and analyze data from experiments conceptually similar to those above\. Required: You bring the confidence and skills to be eligible for the job by meeting these minimum requirements: + Earned bachelor's degree+ Currently attending and enrolled full time \(or scheduled to graduate in the spring\) in an accredited science, engineering, or math graduate program+ Minimum cumulative GPA of 3\.0/4\.0+ Ability to work up to 40 hours per week during the summer+ U\.S\. citizenship _Note: If you have not yet started your graduate program, please apply to an undergraduate intern position\._ Additional Requirements: + Be engaged in graduate studies in a science or engineering field, such as materials science, physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, or related department Desired: + Research experience and skills directly related to one of the topics listed in the job description+ Peer\-reviewed publications in a related area Department Description: The Radiation\-Solid Interaction Department operates the newly\-constructed $40M Ion Beam Laboratory at Sandia National Laboratories\. This state\-of\-the\-art facility houses 4 major accelerators: a 6 MV Tandem, a 3 MV Pelletron, a 400 kV implanter, and a unique 100 kV Nano Implanter with a<20nm spot size\. Other experimental facilities include micro beam lines on all the major accelerators, a pulsed laser deposition system for synthesizing unique films, and a TEM, equipped with gas, fluid, and nanomechanical stages, with in\-situ ion irradiation available from both the Tandem and a Colutron source\. The Ion Beam Laboratory is actively engaged in three major research thrusts: \(1\) Understanding the performance of materials in radiation environments\. These projects impact the performance of microelectronics in space and other hostile environments, and fuel and cladding materials in nuclear reactor and storage environments\. \(2\) Developing and applying novel ion beam techniques to precisely measure materials compositions\. Applications in this area include mapping hydrogen isotopes in fusion wall material, and measuring the composition of thin complex materials such as transition metal oxides\.\(3\) Exploring the materials science of defects in solids\. This broad area includes single ion implants for quantum applications, anomalous grain growth in nanograined materials, hydride formation under irradiation, and nanomechanical responses of materials\.In each thrust the department provides unique capabilities to multidisciplinary teams with an interest in publishing high quality research and applying the results to problems of national interest\.
