Ian Appelbaum, Professor of Physics, has been elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) "for advancing the study of spin-polarized electron transport in semiconductors, especially the fundamental processes revealed by coherent and time-resolved spin transport over macroscopic distances in silicon and germanium."

Fellowship is a distinct honor signifying recognition of "exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise" by one's professional peers. The total number of newly elected Fellows in any one year cannot exceed one-half of one percent of Society memberships.

More information on Professor Appelbaum and his research can be found on his website.
