Arnold Müller, Ph.D.

ETH Zurich

Arnold Müller is leading the ion beam analysis (IBA) activities at the Laboratory of Ion Beam Physics (LIP) at ETH Zürich. His main research area is the development of new instrumentation related to the analysis of materials with ion beams. He finished his Ph.D. in 2009 at ETH Zürich in the field of accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS), where he demonstrated the potential of compact multi-isotope AMS facilities. In the framework of the two EU infrastructure projects SPIRIT and SPRITE, he was involved in various R&D activities related to the implementation of novel ion beam detectors for IBA and AMS applications. In 2013, together with six other members of LIP, Müller was co-founder of the ETH Zürich spin-off company IONPLUS AG, commercializing the innovations made in the field of AMS. From 2016–2021, he worked at IONPLUS as senior researcher, where he was responsible for the Horizon 2020 project Radiate.
