Mr. Bradley is the project leader for the Cryogenic Technologies Project within the Materials Measurement Laboratory of the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado. He has over 25 years of experience in the design, development and measurement of low temperature experiments and evaluation of components and systems including recuperative and regenerative cryocoolers ranging from 4 K to room temperature operation. Much of this experience has been during his tenure at NIST since 1989. Prior to becoming a full-time staff member, Peter started his early career at NIST as an undergraduate PREP (professional research experience program) recipient 1985-1986 and Mechanical Engineer 1987.
He also has experience with cryogenic propellant and flight delivery systems for the space shuttle program at NASA (post Challenger) 1987-1989. At NIST he has served dual capacity as both Mechanical/Cryogenic engineer and scientist for the group/project since 1989.
He has a BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Colorado, 1986 and serves on the board of directors for the International Cryocooler Conference. .
