Professor Müller's research group is part of the Otto Schott Institute for Materials Research (OSIM) at the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena.

The focus of our research are bio-inspired materials (biomineralization, biomimetic surfaces, structural hybrids) and laser materials processing (nanoparticle synthesis, surface modification, additive manufacturing processes, coatings) for applications in the fields of biomaterials, energy and environmental technology.
