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:


Bazin, Daniel [2019]
Michigan State University
Citation: For groundbreaking work developing nuclear reaction mechanisms for the study of rare isotopes, and for the conception and application of innovative technology to enable novel experiments.


Dasgupta, Mahananda [2019]
Australian National University
Citation: For advancing the understanding of nuclear fusion through precision measurements, highlighting the role of quantum superpositions and demonstrating the suppression of fusion for weakly-bound nuclei.


Epelbaum, Evgeny [2019]
Ruhr University Bochum
Citation: For pioneering developments in nuclear forces and electroweak currents in chiral effective field theory and for their successful applications in few- and many-body systems.


Escher, Jutta E [2019]
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Citation: For developing the theoretical framework required to validate the surrogate reaction method for neutron-induced reactions, and for leading the applications of these methods to address important questions in nuclear astrophysics and stewardship science.


Formaggio, Joseph Angelo [2019]
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Citation: For leadership in the pursuit of neutrino masses determination, and for developing novel technologies to attack the problem of direct detection.


Kanungo, Rituparna [2019]
Saint Mary's University
Citation: For seminal studies of weakly bound nuclei that have challenged our understanding of the nuclear many-body system, and for the development of innovative experimental techniques and approaches used in measurements with rare isotope beams.


Mioduszewski, Saskia [2019]
Texas A&M University
Citation: For sustained leadership of high-precision measurement of the quark-gluon plasma using direct photons and their correlations with hadrons and jets at the PHENIX and STAR experiments at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider.


Paschke, Kent [2019]
University of Virginia
Citation: For using parity violation in electron scattering to study the structure of the nucleon and nuclei and the physics beyond the standard model, and for achieving unprecedented control over helicity-correlated systematic errors associated with polarized electron beams.


Quaglioni, Sofia [2019]
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Citation: For contributions to unifying theories for the structure and dynamics of light nuclei by elucidating the role of the continuum in weakly bound nuclei, and the inclusion of three-body final states and three-nucleon interactions within reaction dynamics.


Surrow, Bernd [2019]
Temple University
Citation: For developing the methodology and fundamental measurements for determining the spin structure and dynamics of the proton using W-boson and jet production in high-energy polarized proton collisions, and for developing a future electron-ion collider facility.
