William Tiller, Ph.D.
William Tiller, Ph.D. (www.tiller.org) graduated with a B.A.Sc. in 1952 with a degree in Engineering Physics from the University of Toronto. He also has an M.A.Sc. and a Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. He worked for nine years in the Westinghouse Research Laboratory with theoretical and experimental investigation into the detailed physics of the freezing process of a wide range of materials; i. e., water, metals, semiconductors, oxides and polymers. He also investigated the relationships between the crystallization process and the detailed structure and properties of the solid. He exploited this knowledge of crystallization to generate new processes for ingot casting, material purification, single crystal growth, chemical crystallizers, etc.
Dr. Tiller has been a professor at Stanford University in the Department of materials science and Engineering. He has been a consultant to government and industry in the fields of metallurgy and solid-state physics and formerly Associate Editor of 2 scientific journals. He has published more than 250 scientific papers, three technical books and has five patents issued. His fields of specialization are crystal growth, surfaces and interfaces, physical metallurgy, semiconductor processing, thin film formation, computer simulation and psychoenergetics (70 additional publications in this area). He is also the founding director of the Academy of Parapsychology and Medicine and The Institute of Noetic Sciences.
His Publications include An Introduction to Computer Simulation: The Science of Crystallization: Microscopic Interfacial Phenomena, The Science of Crystallization: Macroscopic Phenomena and Defect Generation, Science and Human Transformation, Conscious Acts of Creation and Some Science Adventures with Real Magic (available April/May 2005).
