This year’s recently announced American Physical Society (APS) Fellows include five scientists from Berkeley Lab, two from the Materials Sciences Division and one each from the Accelerator and Fusion Research, Nuclear Science, and Engineering divisions. APS Fellows are elected by their peers for “exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise; e.g., outstanding physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, or significant contributions to physics education.”

The class of 2013 includes:

Stephen Holland, Engineering, for the invention of the fully-depleted charge-coupled devices (CCDs) whose extended near-infrared sensitivity enables imaging and spectroscopic surveys of the universe, detecting light that was emitted billions of years ago. This technology has also enabled new x-ray and gamma-ray instrumentation. More >>
