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:


Biegert, Jens [2019]
ICFO – The Institute of Photonic Sciences
Citation: For the development of intense few-cycle mid-infrared sources for the generation of water-window high-order harmonics, and their use in fundamental space-time imaging of the dynamics of molecular structure.


Chen, Yu-Ao [2019]
University of Science and Technology of China
Citation: For outstanding contributions on quantum information processing with photons and atoms.


Du, Shengwang [2019]
Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Citation: For significant contributions to photon-atom quantum interaction, including generation and manipulation of narrowband biphotons, and for the realization of efficient quantum memory, observation of optical precursors, and demonstration of nontraditional quantum heat engines.


Ferlaino, Francesca [2019]
University of Innsbruck
Citation: For ground-breaking experiments on dipolar quantum gases of erbium atoms, including the attainment of quantum degeneracy of bosons and fermions, studies on quantum-chaotical scattering, the formation of quantum droplets, and investigations on the roton spectrum.


Hudson, Eric R. [2019]
University of California, Los Angeles
Citation: For pioneering contributions to the study of charged-neutral collision physics, chemistry, and thermodynamics, and for his work developing a nuclear clock and new trapped ion qubits.


Kling, Matthias Friedrich [2019]
Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität
Citation: For many contributions to the field of attosecond science, particularly in the exploration of controlled, optical-field-driven electron dynamics in atoms, molecules, and nano-particles.


Romanov, Dmitri A [2019]
Temple University
Citation: For seminal contributions to our understanding of the interaction of ultra-intense, ultra-fast optical radiation with atoms and molecules for femtosecond laser filamentation-based spectroscopy, nonlinear optics, and coherent control.


Zhang, Jing [2019]
Shanxi University
Citation: For contributions to the fields of continuous-variable quantum information and quantum gases, especially for his pioneering experiments to realize spin-orbit coupling in degenerate Fermi gases.
