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.

APS Fellows Nominated by DNP  

Filter by Year:

Beers, Timothy C. [2016]
University of Notre Dame
Citation: For extensive surveillance of the metal-poor stars in the Milky Way that constrain the origin of the elements in the universe and the nature of neutron-capture nucleosynthesis processes in early generations of stars.

Bernstein, Adam [2016]
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Citation: For pioneering work at the intersection of nuclear science and nuclear nonproliferation, including the development of antineutrino-based methods for monitoring the production of fissile material and large volume detectors for rapid screening of cargo for the presence of fissile material.

David, Gabor [2016]
Stony Brook University (formerly BNL)
Citation: For pioneering contributions to the discovery of jet quenching, direct photon production, and thermal photon flow in heavy ion collisions, and for educational activities and consistent promotion of international collaboration.

Drees, Axel [2016]
State University of New York - Stony Brook
Citation: For having a leading role in the discovery of the suppression of high momentum hadrons and jet quenching in heavy ion collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, and his key contributions to the discovery that hadron properties are modified near the transition to the quark-gluon plasma through the measurement of electron-positron pairs.

Frekers, Dieter [2016]
Universität Münster
Citation: For experimental work on nuclear matrix elements in double beta decay, and contributions to the field of neutrino-nuclear physics and weak interaction physics by using high-resolution charge-exchange reactions of (3He,t) and (d,2He).

Grzywacz, Robert [2016]
University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Citation: For pioneering use of digital signal processing for decay studies of exotic nuclei to identify extremely short-lived proton emitters and, through its unique triggering capabilities, to discover super-allowed alpha decay.

Jalilian-Marian, Jamal [2016]
City University of New York - Baruch College
Citation: For seminal contributions to the understanding of the many-body dynamics of strongly correlated gluons in quantum chromodynamics at small-x, and the development of theoretical tools to explore their properties in proton-nucleus collisions at ultrarelativistic energies.

Leviatan, Amiram [2016]
Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Citation: For the development of powerful algebraic methods and techniques in nuclear structure physics, especially for the introduction of the concept of partial dynamical symmetry.

Londergan, J. Timothy [2016]
Indiana University Bloomington
Citation: For work on approximate parton symmetries, such as charge and flavor symmetry, and for models of the scattering behavior of quarks and hadrons.

Petreczky, Peter [2016]
Brookhaven National Laboratory
Citation: For seminal contributions to the understanding of color screening and quarkonium properties in the quark-gluon plasma based on lattice quantum chromodynamics and effective field theory approaches.

Piepke, Andreas [2016]
University of Alabama
Citation: For substantial contribution to elucidating the nature of neutrinos, particularly his leadership in developing new techniques in the field of low background physics.

Rawitscher, George H. [2016]
University of Connecticut
Citation: For pioneering contributions to the development of the continuum discretized coupled channels method for including the coupling to break-up channels in three-body models of deuteron elastic scattering, break-up and stripping and for his deep studies of the role of nonlocality in the nucleon-nucleus optical potential.

Surman, Rebecca A. [2016]
University of Notre Dame
Citation: For contributions in elucidating r-process nucleosynthesis, in particular for connecting microphysics such as mass models and reaction rates to astrophysical environments, and for guiding the experimental efforts worldwide on deciding the most impactful nuclei to study at exotic nuclear beam facilities.

Wuosmaa, Alan [2016]
University of Connecticut
Citation: For essential contributions to nuclear physics over a wide range of topics including the demonstration of the nonexistence of positron lines in collisions with very heavy nuclei at the Coulomb barrier, the nature of cluster structures in nuclei, studies of particle multiplicities in relativistic heavy-ion collisions, and the exploration of single-particle properties of light exotic nuclei.

Yates, Steven W. [2016]
University of Kentucky
Citation: For important advances in the study of collective nuclear excitations, and for the development of nuclear spectroscopic methods of use with fast neutron scattering reactions.
