The American Physical Society awarded its 2018 Richard L. Greene Dissertation Award in Experimental Condensed Matter or Materials Physics to M.A. Mueed, who earned his Ph.D. from Princeton in 2016 working in the lab of Professor Mansour Shayegan. The award recognizes doctoral thesis research of exceptional quality and importance in experimental condensed matter or experimental materials physics and will be given at the society's March meeting in Los Angeles.
Dr. Mueed studied the low-temperature quantum transport of two-dimensional electron systems confined to GaAs and AlAs quantum wells. His thesis presented a method of using one-dimensional potential modulation to probe the interacting two-dimensional electrons. Dr. Mueed is currently working as a post-doctoral associate at MIT in Prof. Pablo Jarillo-Herrero`s group where he is investigating induced superconductivity in van der Waals hetero-structures.
