The 2023 John Cowley Medal winner
The Cowley Medal is the highest award of the International Federation of Societies for Microscopy and is only awarded once every 4 years. The medal is awarded in recognition of lifetime achievement to an international leader in the fields of diffraction physics or microscopy.
Professor David Muller (PARADIM Director of Electron Microscopy facility) was awarded the The John M Cowley Medal. The award was established to honor the memory of John Maxwell Cowley, esteemed Regents’ Professor and Galvin Professor of Physics at Arizona State University. Cowley was a leader in the field of diffraction, microscopy and crystallography, and he was also the founder of the electron microscopy facility at Arizona State University.
About PARADIM's Facilities
Bulk Crystal Growth
The PARADIM Bulk Crystal Growth Facility is located at Johns Hopkins University. Together with the thin film growth facilities at Cornell, it provides unprecedented capabilities for discovery of new materials and interfaces.
Critical to evaluating new materials is the ability to resolve extremely fine physical features, especially the structure of interfaces, defects and strained thin films.
Theory & Simulation
Theory and Simulation are a critical part of the Materials by Design process employed by PARADIM.
Thin Film Growth
The PARADIM Thin Film Growth Facility provides unprecedented capability for the growth and characterization of thin films and interfaces of inorganic materials.
