Honors & Awards
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.
Liu acknowledged for wide-ranging work in energy materials, catalysis, carbon sequestration, material in extreme conditions and scientific big data mining.
Four Stanford students receive funding for work on novel accelerators and beams for SLAC's X-ray laser.
Roger Blandford, professor of physics, has been awarded the 2016 Crafoord prizes in astronomy from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
He is being honored for the development of theories that help researchers better understand nature’s fundamental particles and forces.
