Fermilab scientists selected as 2014 APS fellows

Last month, three Fermilab scientists were named fellows of the American Physical Society, a distinction awarded each year to no more than one-half of 1 percent of current APS members by their peers.

John Campbell and Deborah Harris were named 2014 fellows to the Division of Particles and Fields. Alexander Zlobin was named a fellow to the Division of the Physics of Beams.

Several Fermilab users were also named APS fellows: David Asner (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory), Mary Bishai (Brookhaven National Laboratory), Eva Halkiadakis (Rutgers University), Wai-Yee Keung (University of Illinois at Chicago), Kevin Pitts (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) and Maria Spiropulu (California Institute of Technology).

John Campbell

For work in perturbative quantum chromodynamics, especially the precise simulation of Standard Model processes in high-energy particle collisions.

Deborah Harris

For leadership in measuring the neutrino reactions that enable current and future accelerator neutrino oscillation experiments.

Alexander Zlobin

For his multiyear leadership, personal innovative contributions and achievements in the development and demonstration of new-generation superconducting accelerator magnets based on Nb3Sn superconductor.
