Alexander Romanenko

The American Physical Society has announced that Fermilab scientist Alexander Romanenko was elected a 2019 APS fellow, a distinction awarded each year to no more than one-half of 1 percent of current APS members by their peers.

Romanenko was nominated a fellow by the Division of Physics of Beams “for groundbreaking contributions to understanding radio frequency power losses in superconducting radio frequency cavities for particle accelerators.”

The APS Fellowship Program was created to recognize members who may have made advances in physics through original research and publication or made significant innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology. They may also have made significant contributions to the teaching of physics or service and participation in the activities of the society.
