Dr. Broholm directs the Institute for Quantum Matter at Johns Hopkins University and is an expert in the use of neutron scattering to probe the structure and excitations of quantum condensed matter. His research exposes anomalous forms of magnetism and superconductivity where quantum fluctuations are enhanced by competing interactions or low dimensionality. He developed the MACS spectrometers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, achieving record efficiency through neutron focusing and wide-angle detection. Dr. Broholm has served on a number of national and international committees relating to neutron scattering and condensed matter physics, including the Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee for the Department of Energy and the Solid State Sciences Advisory Committee for the National Research Council. He received the 2010 Sustained Research Prize of the Neutron Scattering Society of America. Dr. Broholm earned his PhD from the University of Copenhagen and also trained at AT&T Bell Labs.
