Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jörg Weißmüller
Jörg Weissmüller is the head of the Institute of Materials Physics at Hamburg University of Technology; he also heads the Hybride Materials Systems group at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht.
Weissmüller’s research is focused on nanomaterials, with emphasis on thermodynamics, continuum mechanics and electrochemistry of interfaces, phase transformations, magnetism, magnetic neutron scattering, and plastic deformation mechanisms.
Weissmüller studied Materials Science at the Universities of Saarbrücken, Germany and Dundee Scotland. After thesis work on nanomaterials and interfaces in Saarbrücken and (as a PROCOPE fellow) at the Centre for Crystal Growth in Marseille, France, he received a PhD in Engineering from Saarbrücken in 1990.
Weissmüller has worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow with H. Gleiter and R. Birringer at the Institute of New Materials in Saarbrücken. As a Feodor Lynen fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Society her worked with J.W. Cahn and R.D. Shull at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, MD, USA. He received his Venia Legendi in Experimental Physics from Saarbrücken University in 1998, and in the same year joined the Institute of Nanotechnology, now a department of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, as a Heisenberg fellow and group leader. In 2010, Weissmüller was appointed head of the Institute of Materials Physics at Hamburg University of Technology, in combination with the office of head of the Hybride Materials Systems group at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht.
Weissmüller is a member of the Board, DFG Coordinated Research Area SFB 986 ‘Tailor-Made Multi-Scale Materials Systems – M3’, the Head of studies of the TUHH Master program on “Materials Science, and he has been the Coordinator of the DFG Research Unit FOR 714 ‘Plasticity of Nanocrystalline Metals and Alloys’. He has organized several international conferences and conference symposia in the fields of nanomaterials, dealloying and interfacial mechanics.
