Robert Valdillez (Assoc)

Robert Valdillez is a guest researcher in the Radiation Physics Division as a graduate student research assistant working on his PhD. He performs neutron interferometry and optics research. He works within the Neutron Physics Group to measure and tabulate high-precision neutron coherent scattering lengths and neutron-crystalline structure factors. These measurements probe a variety of physics, including lattice dynamics, the neutron charge radius, and physics Beyond the Standard Model.

Robert received his B.S. in Physics and Mathematics from North Carolina State University in 2017 and his Masters degree in Physics from North Carolina State University in 2020. He was an undergraduate researcher in the Neutron Physics Group as a part of the SURF program in 2015 and 2016.
