About Our Group
The Weihs group is a dynamic and supportive collection of PhD students, undergraduate students, research engineers and postdocs who work collaboratively on a broad range of topics in the Field of Materials Science and Engineering. The topics range from the mechanical deformation of Mg alloys to rapid phase transformations in reactive materials, and they cover the spectrum from basic scientific investigations to applied research efforts. Underlying all of these projects, though, is the goal of controlling and linking a material’s microstructure to its properties and performance. We strive to fabricate, characterize and model the materials that we study and we often work with other research groups to do so, both inside and outside of Hopkins. We invite you to view our current list of research projects under the “research” heading above.
Major Focus Areas
Dr. Weihs has over 30 years experience in the fabrication and characterization of solid materials with a focus on thin films, structural materials, hard biomaterials, and reactive materials. He joined the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins in 1995, but took a three year leave of absence in 2002 to co-found and serve as CEO of Reactive NanoTechnologies.
