David Haase is Professor of Physics. He earned a B.A. in physics and mathematics at Rice University and an M.A. and Ph.D. in physics at Duke University, where he was a J. B. Duke Fellow. He has been an active researcher in experimental low temperature and nuclear physics.
He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, an Alumni Distinguished Undergraduate Teaching Professor and has received the Distinguished Service Award of the North Carolina Science Teachers Association; the Alexander Holladay Medal for Excellence, NC State University; and was chosen 1990 Professor of the Year in the State of North Carolina by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). He also received the Francis Pegram Medal for Excellence in Physics Education from the Southeastern Section of the APS. He is a Past Chair of the Forum on Education of the American Physical Society, a former member of the APS Committee on Education, and a Past Chair of the Southeastern Section of the APS.
Areas of Interest
Applications of low temperature techniques to the polarization of nuclear targets for neutron scattering-- We have developed facilities for the polarization of nuclear targets at extreme low temperatures (T< 0.01 K) and high magnetic fields. The targets are used for studies of the spin dependence of the neutron-nucleus interaction and for searches for violations of parity and time-reversal symmetries in experiments at the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory. Of special interest have been the development of a solid polarized 3He target, the largest of its type ever constructed; and a rotating single crystal 165Ho target for time-reversal studies.
Dr. Haase was the founding Director of The Science House, which annually serves over 5,000 teachers and 35,000 students across North Carolina. He has co-authored over 120 papers in experimental physics, and in science education. He co-edited one book of student learning activities and six volumes of Conference Proceedings on K-12 Outreach from University Science Departments.
