UNDERSTANDING MATERIALS AT EXTREME CONDITIONS
JULY 30-AUGUST 4, 2023
- To be held at the Dynamic Compression Sector in the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory, Lemont, IL.
- Accepting upper-level undergraduates and first year graduate students currently registered at a four year college/university and considering further studies in the fields of physics, chemistry, materials science, geo/planetary science, solid mechanics, or related field.
- Enrollment is limited to 25 students.
- Program support includes lodging, meals, and a stipend up to $500 for transportation costs.

Dynamic compression experiments subject materials to unique thermodynamic conditions – very large compressions, high temperatures, and large deformations – on short time scales resulting in a rich array of physical and chemical changes. The four and a half days of activities will introduce students to the scientific fundamentals, contemporary research activities including informal discussions, and career opportunities within this exciting field.
The Dynamic Compression Summer School is sponsored by the Shock Wave Academic Partnership (SWAP).
