The Ultralow Temperature Physics group led by Hans Bozler and Chris Gould is one of only a few laboratories in the world capable of examining the properties of matter at temperatures less than one one-thousandth of a degree above absolute zero. While both faculty maintain separate research programs, there is a great deal of overlap and cooperation between them. The most significant research area for the group has been a long-term program of study of the superfluid phases of liquid ³He (including precision thermodynamic, dynamic magnetic, and hydrodynamic studies). In addition to this the ULT group is studying the strong magnetism induced in normally weakly magnetic ³He when placed next to walls, and issues regarding electron transport in metallic systems at ultralow temperatures. The group has a long history of developing ultralow temperature measurement techniques, and is presently developing instruments based upon single electron transistors and superconducting quantum interference devices.
