Andre Merrile

 

During his summer at Fermilab, Andre helped to build a multi-sample probe capable of testing the critical current of superconducting materials. The critical current is the maximum current that can be passed through a material while it remains superconducting. With much help he was able to assemble the probe and commission it for room temperature and liquid nitrogen tests.

For Fermilab Staff

First of all, thank you for considering supervising a talented student intern from the Fermilab SIST program!

These students are free to your group (except for overtime). So, in this climate of tight budgets here is a way to get free help for your projects.

Guidelines

Please take a moment to review our Guidelines and Expectations for Interns and Supervisors document.

Final Talks

SIST interns will be documenting their work in a journal style write up. In addition to the paper the interns will be making a 15 minute presentation on early in August, 2014. SIST commitee members are available all summer to act as mentors and help the interns prepare the paper and talks, as well as answer any questions.

Details about program dates, housing, transportation, etc. is available in our intern Fact Sheet.
