The APS Fellowship Program recognizes members who have made exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise, including outstanding physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, or significant contributions to physics education.
APS Fellowship is a distinct honor as every Fellow is nominated by his or her peers. Each year, no more than one half of one percent of the Society’s membership is elected to the status of Fellow.
