Smart Material Solutions, Inc. (SMS) is seeking two REU students for 10 week paid summer internships. SMS is a small NC State startup in Raleigh, NC that is developing an advanced nanomanufacturing process called nanocoining. The patented process can seamlessly nanopattern drum molds for roll-to-roll manufacturing hundreds of times faster than competing technologies like electron-beam lithography.
Internship 1: Nanocharacterization This intern will use SMS’s molds to create nanostructured polymer films and perform nanocharacterization to compare the 3D shapes of the nanofeatures in the diamond die, indented mold, and replicated polymer film. This student will receive training on several characterization techniques such as SEM, AFM, and confocal microscopy. SMS prefers a student with a background in materials science, chemical engineering, nanotechnology, or a related field.
Internship 2: Thermal Control System The second REU student will create a temperature control system for SMS’s custom ultrasonic resonant actuator. SMS is interested in hiring a student with a strong background in mechanical engineering, thermal systems, and data acquisition.
