David H. Douglass

David H. Douglass is professor of physics in experimental condensed matter physics at the University of Rochester, whose faculty he joined in 1968. He was a recipient of the Alfred P. Sloan Award (junior) for four years, the Alfred P. Sloan Award (senior), and the University of Rochester’s Bridging Fellowship to the Eastman School of Music. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society. His work has involved experiments in the areas of liquid helium and superconductivity (both low temperature and high temperature). He also has made significant contributions in the field of gravitational wave detectors. He has also worked on chaos and frequency drifts of spectral lines of extended sources. His interests for the past several years are on climate change, in particular with the fundamental science issues underlying “global warming.”
