Huber research update
Martin E. Huber, Professor of Physics, has returned from his Fulbright-funded sabbatical in Israel, where he worked with colleagues on superconducting quantum interference devices – or SQUIDs – to measure atomic-scale magnetic vortices. Two papers on this work have been submitted to Nano Letters and Nature Physics. In his other research program, a collaborative work among over a dozen institutions in the search for dark matter, Huber’s NSF proposal for continuing local work was selected from among a very competitive field of applicants. The collaboration's proposal for a new experiment, SuperCDMS SNOLAB, was also approved by the NSF and DOE for construction in the coming years; Huber will conduct work related to the development and construction of this experiment at CU Denver through additional, project-specific funding.
