Nicholas P. Butch
At the NCNR, I am an instrument contact for NG-4 DCS. I primarily support experiments involving unconventional magnetism and what might be generally termed hard condensed matter physics. If you are thinking of doing a measurement on DCS, you are encouraged to contact me before proposal submission to discuss experimental details.
For more information about my personal research, please visit the NPB homepage.
Recent or upcoming PhD graduates who are interested in postdoctoral research focusing on novel superconductivity, magnetism, and/or quantum phase transitions through a variety of techniques ranging from sample synthesis to neutron scattering are invited to apply for a NRC postdocdoral fellowship.
For more details, please contact Dr. Butch.
