Michael G. Huber

Starting as a NIST guest researcher in 2003, Huber has worked in the field of fundamental neutron physics with an emphasis on neutron scattering and neutron interferometry. Michael received his Ph.D. in physics from Tulane University in 2009 which he followed by a NRC Post-doc before being hired as NIST staff scientist. Currently, he is the principle responsible for the neutron interferometry program which utilize two neutron beamlines. The facility, in collaboration with several universities, hosts students and post-docs from around the country and also internationally. Being a diverse instrument, neutron interferometry experiments range from quantum information science, material science, testing postulates of quantum mechanics, and searching for new short range forces. Huber specializes in using neutron interferometry to perform precision measurements of scattering lengths. Outside of interferometry, he has also worked on a neutron lifetime measurement using Ultra-cold neutrons trapped in a magnetic field.
