Bruce D. Gaulin


  • Fellow
  • Quantum Materials


Bruce Gaulin specializes in experimental condensed matter physics, focusing on neutron and X-ray scattering studies of new magnetic and superconducting materials.

Gaulin’s neutron scattering efforts have focused on new time-of-flight neutron scattering infrastructure, and on the first optical floating zone image furnace laboratory in Canada for the production of large, high-quality single crystals of superconducting and magnetic oxides.
Gaulin’s research lab has produced very high-quality single crystals of a range of interesting quantum materials, including new geometrically frustrated magnets; new quantum, singlet ground state magnets; and related high temperature superconductors. Much of his recent work has been directed to understanding novel spin liquids, spin ice and spin glass states in new magnets at low temperatures.
