Kevin Jones: Grant to Support Summer Students

Posted May 6, 2011: The National Institute of Standards and Technology, through its Summer Undergraduate Fellowship Program (NIST-SURF), has awarded Williams College a grant to support summer research by David Kealhofer and Christina Knapp, both current sophomores. The students will be working at NIST in Gaithersburg MD doing research on advanced quantum optics with NIST scientists and Prof. Jones. The grant covers stipends, housing and travel for the students. NIST has been a steady supporter of undergraduate research at Williams, making its advanced facilities available to Prof. Jones and his students.
