The Lehigh Physics Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program is funded primarily by the National Science Foundation. The mission of the REU program is to broaden participation in research by groups who are underrepresented in STEM fields. Therefore we strongly encourage applications from women, ethnic minorities, students with disabilities, first generation college students, and students whose home college does not provide Physics research opportunities. Previous research experience is not a requirement.
Possible research areas include
Atomic & Molecular Physics.
Condensed Matter/Materials Science.
High Energy Theory.
Photonics and Nonlinear Optics.
Physics Education Research.
