NanoCenter members and UMD faculty Wolfgang Losert and Edo Waks have been named Fellows of the American Physical Society.

The APS Fellowship Program was created to recognize members who may have made advances in physics through original research and publication, or made significant 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.

Losert, a professor of physics, was nominated by the society’s Division of Biological Physics “for imaginative studies of complex living systems, and for numerous contributions to understanding dynamical properties of complex systems at the convergence of physics, materials science, and biology.”  He is also the Associate Dean for Research, Graduate Education, and Faculty Affairs at the College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences; the director of the UMD-NCI Partnership for Cancer Technology and member of both the Institute for Physical Science & Technology and the Institute for Research in Electronics & Applied Physics at UMD.

Waks, an associate professor of department of electrical and computer engineering, was nominated by the Division of Laser Science “for significantly advancing the field of quantum photonics and for developing new concepts to strongly interact solid-state quantum emitters with nanophotonic components.”  He is also a member of the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics and of the Joint Quantum Institute at UMD.

Each year, no more than one half of one percent of the Society membership is recognized by their peers for election to the status of Fellow in the American Physical Society.
