Our research group works to control atoms and atomic order, and find useful applications for them. Topics range from designing atomically ordered crystals and alloys, to innovations in precision time and frequency and associated positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) applications.
We are a hybrid group, engaging in both experimental and computational theory research. Our researchers range in experience from postdoctoral associates to high school students, and primarily include backgrounds in physics, chemistry, mathematics, materials science, and engineering. However, the group maintains an open door policy as a core tenet and anyone with a love of learning is welcome to come explore with us.
The proposed research is highly multidisciplinary and sits at the interface of scientific interest and technological applications, making each research project capable of funding for both basic research (NSF, DOE) and directed applications (DOD, industrial partnerships).
Hauser group gratefully acknowledges nearly $7M in current and prior funding support from the National Science Foundation, Army Research Office, Department of Energy, and the Department of Defense through various pass-through entities.
Hauser group specifically acknowledges current financial support from the National Science Foundation (CAREER DMR-2047251, NRT DGE-2244074, FuSe DMR-2328830).
Congratulations to our newest group PhD graduate,
Dr. Ka Ming Law!
Headed to Auburn University for postdoctoral research.
We are always seeking motivated researchers from undergraduates to postdoctoral researchers.
