APS Fellows Nominated by DPP
University ofMichigan, Ann Arbor
Citation: For major contributions in the development of high fidelity computational models for simulation of non-equilibrium processes in low temperature plasma with application to plasma thrusters, plasma plumes and their interaction with the ionosphere.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Citation: For innovative design and modeling of hohlraums for Inertial Confinement Fusion and leadership in the execution of hohlraum experiments on the National Ignition Facility.
University of California, Los Angeles
Citation: For novel and impactful experimental research into fundamental processes relevant to laboratory, space and astrophysical plasmas including magnetic reconnection, wave-wave interactions, and turbulence and transport in magnetically-confined plasmas.
Citation: For pioneering contribution to comprehensive models, simulation, and innovative experiments for verification of plasma evolution and interactions with materials for applications in fusion devices, laser and discharge-produced plasma, and nanolithography.
Citation: For contributions to tokamak boundary plasma research in divertor heat flux dissipation and control, transport of confined core plasma to material surfaces due to Edge-Localized Modes, and the mechanisms defining the structure of the H-mode edge pedestal.
University of Nevada, Reno
Citation: For broad high-impact contributions to plasma spectroscopy and pioneering genetic-algorithm-driven multi-objective data analysis in high-energy density plasma spectroscopy.
Citation: For seminal research in experimentally establishing the physics limits to the attainable pressure in the H-mode pedestal, for identifying the scaling of the width of the pedestal and for testing a model for pedestal structure, based on these two physics elements.
Citation: For pioneering work in the development of theoretical and numerical methods for high-intensity beam dynamics, and geometric approach and algorithms for gyrokinetic theory.
University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
Citation: For major contributions toward the use of lithium as a plasma facing component for fusion applications and understanding of plasma-material interactions through innovative experiments.
Sandia National Laboratories
Citation: For innovative design of pulsed power fusion targets including concepts employing direct magnetic compression of pre-magnetized and pre-heated fuel.
Los Alamos National Laboratory
Citation: For scientific leadership and landmark discovery in the theory and complex kinetic modeling of nonlinear laser-plasma interaction physics, including stimulated Raman scattering and laser-driven particle acceleration.
University of Maryland
Citation: For contributions to fundamental kinetic plasma turbulence theory and for numerous research contributions in magnetospheric, solar, and interplanetary plasmas.
