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:


Alford, Mark [2015]
Washington University
Citation: For elucidating the properties of quark matter, including its phase structure and signatures for its possible existence in neutron stars.


Bernstein, Lee [2015]
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Citation: For work developing novel methods of determining neutron-nucleus cross sections via high-resolution γ-ray spectroscopy, the early development of surrogate ratio method, and the study of nuclear processes in high energy density plasmas at NIF.


Blunden, Peter [2015]
University of Manitoba
Citation: For seminal contributions to advancing our understanding of two-photon and two-boson exchange processes, and their implications for extracting electromagnetic and weak form factors of the nucleon.


Clark, Roderick [2015]
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Citation: For contributions to our understanding of superdeformation, decisive measurements providing firm evidence of the shears mechanism in atomic nuclei, and recent studies of the structure of isomeric states in heavy elements.


D'Auria, John [2015]
Simon Fraser University
Citation: For a leadership role in the production of accelerated radioactive beams using the isotope separation online (ISOL)approach at TRIUMF and elsewhere, and research with such beams in experimental nuclear physics and astrophysics.


Grosse Perdekamp, Matthias [2015]
University of Illinois, Urbana
Citation: For a leadership role in spin physics at RHIC and the measurement of the novel Collins fragmentation functions at Belle.


Ma, Yu-Gang [2015]
Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics
Citation: For a leadership role in the construction of the MRPC Time-of-Flight detector for STAR collaboration, the subsequent discoveries of anti-helium 4 and anti-hypertriton at RHIC, and significant contributions to studies of nuclear liquid-gas phase transition in intermediate energy heavy-ion collisions.


Nagle, James [2015]
University of Colorado, Boulder
Citation: For outstanding scientific and technical contributions to the study of heavy flavor production and correlations in high-energy nuclear interactions and for leadership of the PHENIX experiment.


Nunes, Filomena [2015]
Michigan State University
Citation: For developing new standards in relating nuclear reactions, nuclear structure, and astrophysical reaction rates by the implementation of non-perturbative treatments of nuclear breakup.


Orginos, Kostas [2015]
William & Mary College
Citation: For innovative developments and applications of lattice QCD algorithms and techniques that provide unique insight into low-energy QCD, ranging from nucleon structure to charmed hadron spectroscopy to multi-nucleon systems.


Piasetzky, Eli [2015]
Tel Aviv University
Citation: For pioneering explorations of the high momentum structure of the nuclear wave function using high energy probes and the discovery of the dominance of proton-neutron pairs.


Rai, Gulshan [2015]
Department of Energy - United States of America
Citation: For pioneering work at the Berkeley Bevalac, especially development and first implementation of time projection chambers with pad readout, and initiating a heavy-ion energy scan experiment (EOS/E895) at Brookhaven's AGS accelerator.


Saunders, Alexander [2015]
Los Alamos National Laboratory
Citation: For contributions in developing proton radiography and the LANL ultra cold neutron source, enabling new applications of nuclear science and an improved understanding of the decay of the free neutron.


Vetter, Kai [2015]
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Citation: For pioneering contributions to fundamental radiation detection techniques, particularly gamma-ray imaging, and important societal applications.
