The E. W. Müller Young Scientist Award is one of the highest honors bestowed by the International Field Emission Society (IFES). Named after the founder of the society, the award recognizes a young scientist for a recent and original scientific work on a topic area of relevance to the mission of the society, i.e. high field nanoscience and atom probe microscopy. The two-stage selection process is highly competitive, with a single winner being chosen during the APT&M conference.
