1. Two-Photon Lithography  
Two-photon lithography (TPL) is a 3-D printing technique based on nonlinear two-photon absorption to solidify sub-micron features sized below the diffraction limit. Onsite at LLNL we have developed a parallel TPL system with the printing throughput significantly higher than that of existing TPL systems based on serial scanning. With this new capability of projection lithography we not only increase the speed but also have degrees of freedom in printing free-form features, producing the complex geometries that cannot be realized by conventional technologies. This can help manufacturing new classes of metamaterials with mechanical and structural properties unachievable before. To further investigate this, we are in need of a student intern to help with designing and characterizing microstructures and metamaterials printed by our new TPL system.

1. Computational design of meta-mat. using reduced order models  
Computational design of meta-material is traditionally done either using homogenization technique with infinitely periodic boundary condition or simple beam approach. The homogenization approach suffers from the violation of infinite periodic boundary condition, while the beam approach fails to capture accurate stress values at joints. The goal of this project is to develop reduced order model based computational design of meta-material that enables an accurate stress computation at the joints and does not rely on infinitely periodic boundary condition.

Very exciting, practical, and high impact summer project! This project requires software development skills such as C++ and/or MATLAB.

1. Nidra - Sleep coaching app  
American Specialty Health, Ashcompanies.com, American Specialty Health Incorporated (ASH) provides health plans, employer groups, insurance carriers and trust funds with a wide range of wellness and population health, fitness and exercise, and specialty health care management programs to improve the health of their employees or members.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Nidra - Sleep coaching app

How ASH can fix the sleep problem

Sleep is important. 1 in 3 Americans isn’t getting enough sleep. This is an expensive problem. Tired people are less productive and make more mistakes. A poor night’s sleep can lead to deadly consequences on the road. Good quality sleep has been linked to lower incidences of cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Medication only provides short term relief and the type of sleep medication induces is not high-quality sleep.

ASH has developed a novel approach to common sleep problems using a set of effective evidence-based techniques based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Our techniques use app and wearable device support tailored to the user’s specific sleep patterns designed to reinforce good sleep behaviors while reducing or eliminating poor sleep behaviors.   The 5-week program utilizes a combination of short actionable articles, engaging interactive activities and thoughtful, well-timed notifications to promote lasting behavior changes. 

The team we’d like to put in place would be in charge of developing an initial version of this app for the iPhone and the Apple Watch, using the watch as a sleep and activity sensor and the app as a mean to deliver the techniques we’ve developed for the users to improve their sleep. 

What the team looks like: 1-2 mobile developers + 1 designer working very closely together under the guidance of the clinical product manager who developed the idea and details of the program. The team would also benefit from the supervision of our software engineering leadership and some of their team members.

Description of Projects

**Please note - all students will apply to "Mechanical Design Engineering Interns" position. Intern teams and specific projects from the 3 listed below will be assigned after all interviews have been conducted.**

1) Improving Equipment Health with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

This is an exploratory project to assess the viability of low-cost IIoT sensors and subsystem models in support of improved maintenance and operational intelligence. Industry 4.0 has introduced a wide range of low-cost sensors along with different mechanisms to aggregate information from those sensors. A low-cost targeted solution would provide Solar with additional revenue streams and provide our customers with more information to optimally operate and maintain their packages. This solution should also be extensible enough to facilitate station-level implementations. Additionally, we want to predict required maintenance activities to prevent unplanned shutdowns and detect abnormal operation before costly damage occurs. This project will implement new sensor inputs and combine these inputs with data models such that they can be used to predict the life of key subsystem components and to monitor turbine health in real time.

2) Package Maintenance Grating – Structural Analysis and Standardization

Solar Turbines’ number one priority is safety. Safe access for Solar personnel and Solar’s customers up to and into Solar’s gas turbine packages is critical for routine maintenance activities and major overhauls. This is accomplished by installing maintenance grating platforms in and around the gas turbine package. The goal of this team is to familiarize themselves with Solar’s current maintenance grating offerings, research the latest industry safety standards, investigate alternate materials and processes for creating this grating and associated supports, perform structural analysis (FEA) on new design proposals, draft design guidelines for standardization of these maintenance gratings, and fabricate and test these designs as proofs of concept.

3) Drivetrain Alignment Calculation Tool Optimization

Precision alignment of rotating equipment is critical to the successful operation of the equipment. Customers require drivetrain alignment calculations and drawings from Solar Turbines on >95% of projects. These calculations vary in complexity depending on the drivetrain configuration required by the customer. The primary goals for this team would be to update the drivetrain alignment calculation process by improving the existing tool user interface using VBA coding, creating the ability to handle a larger variety of drivetrain configurations, and adding capabilities to enhance the alignment drawing generation process in Solar’s 3D CAD modeling environment.

**Please note - all students will apply to "Mechanical Design Engineering Interns" position. Intern teams and specific projects from the 3 listed above will be assigned after all interviews have been conducted.**

Required Skills:

Knowledge of fluid mechanics; interest in structural design; familiarity with structural analysis of metal parts including I-beams, angle iron, brackets, and fasteners; familiarity with MS Office suite; basic programming knowledge

Preferred Skills:

VBA coding experience; Creo Parametric or other 3D CAD modeling experience; mechanical design experience; ability to perform stress and strength calculations; ANSYS Workbench or other FEA software; experience with IoT devices; organized with good documentation skills
