APS Fellowship

The APS Fellowship Program was created to recognize members who may have made advances in knowledge through original research and publication or made significant and innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology. They may also have made significant contributions to the teaching of physics or service and participation in the activities of the Society. Each year, no more than one-half of one percent of the then current membership of the Society are recognized by their peers for election to the status of Fellow in The American Physical Society.

Fellowship nominations may be submitted by anyone who is a member of the APS in good standing. All members of DAMOP are strongly encouraged to nominate colleagues whom they consider worthy of this recognition. See the Fellowship nomination information page for guidance on submitting nominations.

APS Fellows Nominated by DAMOP  

Filter by Year:


Gao, Bo [2009]
University of Toledo
Citation: For contributions to the quantum-defect theory of cold atom interactions and the analyses of the associated mathematical special functions.


Kuzmich, Alexander M. [2009]
Georgia Institute of Technology
Citation: For experimental work with atomic ensembles that have advanced our understanding of atom-atom and atom-light entanglement, demonstating the feasibility of quantum repeaters.


Muga, Juan G. [2009]
Universidad del Pais Vasco
Citation: For pioneering theoretical work on tunneling time in quantum mechanics and for the development of the concept of the atom diode and its application to cooling of atoms.


Naduvalath, Balakrishnan [2009]
University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Citation: For seminal contributions to the understanding of molecular energy transfer and chemical reactivity in ultra-cold atom-molecule systems.


Onofrio, Roberto [2009]
Dartmouth College
Citation: For contributions to measurement theory and experimental techniques, and their applications to a broad spectrum of quantum systems, in particular the Casimir force.


Ralchenko, Yuri [2009]
National Institute of Standards and Technology
Citation: For significant contributions to the relativistic theory of highly-charged ions and collisional-radiative modeling, and through creation of online codes and databases for the atomic physics community.


Remacle, Francoise [2009]
University of Liege
Citation: For studies of systems with a high density of states such as Rydberg systems, quantum dot arrays and peptides, and their utilization in molecular information processing and attoscience.
