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.
APS Fellowship Information
APS Fellows Nominated by DNP
Mississippi State University
Citation: For his pioneering work on covariant nuclear density functional theory, and his contributions to the understanding of collective phenomena in atomic nuclei.
Ohio State University
Citation: For his comprehensive work on the diffuse supernova neutrino background and for his wide-ranging work in neutrino astrophysics, which is directed at finding new sources and using their detections to probe neutrino properties and the physical conditions in the astrophysical sources.
Citation: For development and application of the self-consistent Green's function method for attacking the nuclear many-body problem, yielding fundamental insights into the roles of nuclear correlations in experimentally accessible observables.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Citation: For use of gamma ray spectroscopic techniques to elucidate the behavior of atomic nuclei at the limits of existence, from the investigation of super-deformation at the highest angular momentum to studies of weakly bound states in light systems approaching the neutron drip-line.
Michigan State University
Citation: For her work in developing sensitive techniques based on gamma-ray detection to explore the properties of rare isotopes.
Citation: For his contributions to the highest impact experiments in neutrino physics, especially for the major roles he played in the Daya Bay and KamLAND experiments.
Brookhaven National Laboratory
Citation: For his scientific and technical contributions to Relativistic Heavy Ion Physics, determination of collision geometry and its effect on Quark Gluon Plasma observables, and his leadership on the PHENIX experiment at RHIC.
Citation: For his seminal contributions to the development of ab initio nuclear structure and nuclear reaction theory including pioneering demonstrations of the critical role of realistic three-nucleon interactions.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Citation: For his pioneering work on particle correlations in high-energy nuclear interactions, which led to the discovery of triangular flow, and his role in steering the PHOBOS and CMS heavy-ion physics programs.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Citation: For outstanding achievements in experimental nuclear astrophysics, including the first demonstration of the inverse-kinematic technique of measuring capture reactions on exotic beams with direct recoil detection, for advancing this technology, and for tireless efforts to convey the significance of such measurements to the general public.
University of Illinois
Citation: For seminal contributions to the theory of high energy density strongly interacting matter, and to the understanding of strong interactions in the strong coupling limit and for being among the first to propose the use of fluctuations to search for phase transitions in heavy ion collisions, for which there is now an active experimental program at the RHIC accelerator.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Citation: For the development and application of all-order treatments of nuclear-cluster dynamics in peripheral reactions; leading to a new understanding of halo nuclei within a few-body framework.
Virginia Technical Institute
Citation: For significant contributions to neutrino physics and underground science, especially through his leadership in calibrating the Borexino detector, with the first real-time detection of 7Be solar neutrinos, and his creation of the Kimballton Underground Research Facility, which is opening up new opportunities for fundamental physics experiments.
