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:


Becker, Andreas [2018]
University of Colorado, Boulder
Citation: For contributions to the understanding of the behavior of atoms and molecules in intense light fields, including seminal theoretical studies of attosecond dynamics, photoionization, complex electron dynamics in simple systems such as H2, and a better understanding of high-harmonic generation.


Bostedt, Christoph [2018]
Argonne National Laboratory
Citation: For pioneering studies that elucidate the mechanisms and dynamics of high-intensity x-ray interactions with nanoparticles.


Cazalilla, Miguel A. [2018]
National Tsing Hua University – Taiwan
Citation: For fundamental contributions to the understanding of one-dimensional quantum systems in and out of equilibrium.


Denschlag, Johannes H. [2018]
University of Ulm - Germany
Citation: For seminal experimental studies with cooled and trapped atoms, molecules, and ions.


Kendrick, Brian K. [2018]
Los Alamos National Laboratory
Citation: For the development and application of new computational methods to include the geometric (Berry) phase in molecular collisions and spectra using the gauge potential approach.


Kimball, Derek F. [2018]
California State University, East Bay
Citation: For outstanding contributions to the development of new techniques in atomic magnetometry and their application to fundamental-physics research, including testing the fundamental symmetries of nature and searches for ultralight dark-matter candidates.


Madsen, Lars Bojer [2018]
Aarhus University
Citation: For outstanding contributions to the theory of attosecond science and strong field physics, including the development of numerical and analytical methods for describing strong field ionization processes, in particular for polar molecules.


Zelevinsky, Tanya [2018]
Columbia University
Citation: For pioneering research on producing ultracold molecules confined in optical lattices and using them for precision spectroscopy and test of fundamental physics.
