An Indiana University postdoctoral position is available in the
Indiana/NIST program for the development and application of polarized
3He-based neutron spin filters to materials science and fundamental
physics. In the development area, we are pursuing both metastability-exchange
optical pumping (Indiana and NIST) and spin-exchange (NIST) to produce
the polarized 3He gas. Current applications in materials science include
small angle neutron scattering at NIST and polarized neutron reflectomtery
at the Intense Pulsed Neutron Source at Argonne National Lab. 3He-based
spin filters can also be used in experiments involving the weak interaction
of neutrons, and experiments in various stages of preparation intend to
use this technology.
The candidate will be based at the Indiana University Cyclotron Facility in
Bloomington, Indiana, with trips to the NIST Center for Neutron Research in
Gaithersburg, Maryland and/or the Argonne Intense Pulsed Neutron Source near Chicago.
This work is quite interdiscliplinary, so applicants from the fields of AMO
physics, nuclear physics, or neutron scattering will be considered.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in physics. The position is available
immediately, but any starting date before Dec. 2000 can be accomodated.
