Washington State University The Dynamic Compression Sector

Itinerary

Undergraduate Research 2017

  • Day 1: Introduces dynamic compression science and the fundamentals of matter at high pressure, followed by a tour of the state-of-the-art facilities at the Dynamic Compression Sector at the Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory.
  • Day 2: Continues with the foundations of dynamic compression, followed by an introduction to the opportunities available in dynamic compression science at the Institute for Shock Physics (ISP) at Washington State University – including a talk by a current ISP graduate student.
  • Day 3: Builds upon the foundations laid during the first two days and focuses on applications of dynamic compression to address scientific problems in various areas including: materials science, geophysics and planetary physics, phase transformations, and mechanical engineering.
  • Day 4: Provides an overview of career opportunities in dynamic compression science, with perspectives by speakers from each of the three major National Laboratories.

For information about each of the speakers click on the 2017 Summer School Presenters link.

In addition, activities such as a reception, pizza outing, and banquet will be organized for participants and speakers.



A Tour of the Dynamic Compression Sector will be included.
