Graduate Students / Post-Doctoral Fellows:
Bill Gannon rules the UPt3 crystal growth lab with an iron fist. He is currently performing neutron scattering experiments on UPt3 to study the B to C vortex transition and broken time reversal symmetry.
Charles Collett studies ultrasonic acoustics in
3He at moderate magnetic fields on Cryo 1. This includes the acoustic Faraday effect and the possibility of circular dichroism in 3He-B, pioneering the new field of chiracoustics.
Leo Li studies superfluid 3He in aerogel on Cryo 2 . In particular, he is using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) to investigate the interplay between structural anisotropy of the aerogel and superfluid phase stability and textures.
Andrew Zimmerman has joined the ULT group and is working with Leo on Cryo 2.
Two undergraduates are working in the lab. Mike Psitos is working in the UPt3 lab with Bill Gannon, and Mark Specht has taken up work in the aerogel lab.
