Bruce D. Gaulin Condensed matter physicist
Bruce Gaulin specializes in experimental condensed matter physics. His work centres on neutron and x-ray scattering studies of new magnetic and superconducting materials. Gaulin’s neutron scattering efforts have focused on new time-of-flight neutron scattering infrastructure, and the first optical floating zone image furnace laboratory in Canada for the production of large high-quality single crystals of superconducting and magnetic oxides.
Gaulin’s research lab has produced very high-quality single crystals of a range of interesting quantum materials, including new geometrically-frustrated magnets; new quantum, singlet ground state magnets; and related high temperature superconductors. Much of his recent work has been directed to understanding novel spin liquids, spin ice, and spin glass states in new magnets at low temperatures.
