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:


Armstrong, David S. [2018]
College of William & Mary
Citation: For leadership role in a career-long program of research centered on characterizing and understanding the role of the weak force and parity-violating phenomena in nuclear physics.


Bogner, Scott K. [2018]
Michigan State University
Citation: For the development and application of renormalization group methods to low-energy nuclear physics, including the similarity renormalization group and the in-medium similarity renormalization group as a new ab initio method.


Caines, Helen [2018]
Yale Univ
Citation: For her pivotal role in promoting the beam energy scan at RHIC and measurement of the energy dependence of jet quenching through development of techniques for full jet reconstruction in relativistic heavy ion collisions.


Hagen, Gaute [2018]
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Citation: For contributions to the development of coupled-cluster methods in nuclear physics and his theoretical predictions for the structure of rare isotopes.


Jeon, Sangyong [2018]
McGill University
Citation: For seminal contributions to the calculation of transport coefficients using relativistic quantum field theory and the application of relativistic viscous fluid dynamics to high energy heavy ion Collisions.


Jones, Kate L. [2018]
University of Tennessee
Citation: For important contributions to understanding the structure of neutron-rich and weakly bound nuclei, in particular from neutron transfer reactions with radioactive 132Sn beams.


Keppel, Cynthia E. [2018]
Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility
Citation: For leadership on novel experimental techniques to study strong interactions, her contributions to CTEQ from the perspective of Nuclear Physics, and her instrumental role in founding the Hampton University Proton Therapy Center and other work applying Nuclear Physics to Medicine.


Liu, Chen-Yu [2018]
Indiana University Bloomington
Citation: For the development of bright sources of ultracold neutrons and for precision measurements of the free neutron lifetime and neutron decay correlation coefficients.


Odyniec, Grazyna [2018]
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Citation: For leadership and contributions to the understanding of strangeness production in high-energy nuclear collisions and to the RHIC beam energy scan program.
