    Participating in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program: Yes

    Research Interest:
    I am looking for a (rising) Junior undergrad for a project that combines microfluidic and nanotechnology to create small lasers. The project will be performed by building a microfluidic flow system whereby oil droplets that have fluorescent nanoparticles (also called quantum dots) in them will flow through a water channel. The oil droplets will be perfectly round, which makes them laser cavities for the quantum dots that act as the laser gain material.

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 8

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Minimum GPA: 3.2
    Preferred major: Must be a Junior in Chemistry in Fall 2018.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    Try many things. Its not too hard.
