Honors & Awards
Kumar’s work, carried out in part at SSRL, explains how memristors work – a new class of electronic devices with applications in next-generation information storage and computing.
The emeritus physicist was honored for the development of novel detectors that have greatly advanced experiments in particle physics, especially BABAR, which looked into the matter-antimatter imbalance of the universe.
The Scripps researcher is honored for groundbreaking research at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource that accelerated the development of a vaccine for deadly Lassa fever.
Zeeshan Ahmed, Frederico Fiuza and Emilio Nanni will each receive about $2.5 million over five years to pursue cutting-edge research into cosmic inflation, plasma acceleration and using terahertz waves to accelerate particles.
Following the 2017 American Physical Society (APS) general election, Philip Bucksbaum will be vice president of APS in 2018 – an election that places him in the presidential line. He will become president-elect in 2019 and president in 2020.
The award recognizes the Stanford/SLAC professor’s pioneering work in the fields of energy and nanomaterials science.
Claudio Pellegrini, a distinguished professor emeritus of physics at UCLA and adjunct professor of photon science at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences in recognition of his “distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.”
Sila Kiliccote, Jodi Verleger and Lydia Young demonstrate what it means to live SLAC’s values.
The prize, shared with Sekazi Mtingwa and Anton Piwinski, honors theoretical work that helped sharpen the focus of beams at a wide variety of particle accelerators.
The award honors his work on a world-class experimental station at SLAC's Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource.
