The American Physical Society (APS) has selected five Laboratory scientists as APS Fellows.
Vasily Bulatov of the Chemistry and Materials Science (CMS) Directorate was selected in the computational physics division “for outstanding contributions to computational materials sciences, particularly in the areas of dislocation dynamics and crystal plasticity.”
Carlos Iglesias of the Physics and Advanced Technologies (PAT) Directorate was selected in the plasma physics division “for ground-breaking contributions to the study of the production and transport of radiation in astrophysical and laboratory plasmas, including the development of the OPAL opacity code.”
John Moriarty, also of the PAT Directorate, was selected in the computational physics division “for his pioneering contributions to the first-principles quantum-based calculation of interatomic forces in d- and f-electron materials, with major impact on high-pressure physics, multiscale modeling and national security.”
Harry Radousky of the University Relations Program was selected in the materials physics division “for his outstanding contributions and scientific leadership in experimental condensed matter and materials physics, with particular emphasis on innovative discoveries related to optical materials, superconductivity, and high-pressure research.”
Joe Wong of the CMS Directorate was selected “for innovative and significant contributions to experimental materials physics, particularly for contributions to XAFS (X-ray Absorption of Fine Structure) and XANES (X-ray Absorption Near Edge Structure), and for the first measurements of phonon dispersion in plutonium.”
Each year, no more than one-half of one percent of the current
APS membership is elected to the status of Fellow. APS fellowship recognizes members who have made advances in knowledge through original research and publication or those who have made significant and innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology. APS Fellows also may have made significant contributions to the teaching of physics or service and participation in the activities of the society.
