Affiliate Tim Mueller Receives NSF CAREER Award; Published in Physical Review B

Tim Mueller, an IDIES Affiliate through the Whiting School of Engineering and a Johns Hopkins University assistant professor of materials science and engineering, has been selected by the National Science Foundation to receive its prestigious CAREER Award, which recognizes the highest level of excellence and promise in early-stage scholars. His faculty appointment is within the university’s Whiting School of Engineering.

A full release of the announcement can be read on the Johns Hopkins University’s Office of Communications website.

Additionally, Tim Mueller published an article in Physical Rewiew B on the use of machine learning to study amorphous silicon. He calculated data on hole trap depths in over 1000 amorphous and nanocrystalline silicon samples, and through the analysis of this data was able to identify a potentially important structure-property relationship that had not previously been found.

The publication can be read on Physical Rewiew B’s website. Physical Rewiew B is the largest and most comprehensive international journal specializing in condensed matter and materials physics, publishing important papers on a wide range of topics.
