The NIF and Photon Science Directorate often has opportunities for undergraduate and graduate-level students to engage in cutting-edge scientific research to further their educational and research goals. The Student Internship Program can provide undergraduate and graduate students research opportunities in lasers, plasma physics, electro-optics, software development, and optical, x-ray, and nuclear instrument development and testing. Students work alongside scientists at on-site laser and nuclear facilities in the areas of advanced laser development, laser–plasma interactions, hydrodynamics, material science, radiation physics, and various diagnostic systems.
