Two Fermilab scientists selected as 2023 APS fellows

The American Physical Society announced the recipients of the 2023 APS Fellowships. Two U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory scientists, Chandrashekhara Bhat and Robert Zwaska, were selected, a distinction awarded each year to no more than one-half of 1% of current APS members by their peers.

Fermilab heartily congratulates the fellows on this prestigious honor.

Chandrashekhara Bhat

Chandrashekhara Bhat

Chandrashekhara Bhat is named an APS fellow by the Division of Physics of Beams “for outstanding and sustained contributions to accelerator physics and technology that has enabled several significant discoveries in particle physics including the discoveries of single top quark production at the Tevatron and Higgs boson production at the Large Hadron Collider.”







Robert Zwaska.

Robert Zwaska

Robert Zwaska is named an APS fellow by the Division of Physics of Beams “for leadership and important contributions to the development of record beam power neutrino targets and high-intensity proton accelerators.”







The full listing of 2023 fellows can be found on the APS Fellow Archive. The APS fellowship program recognizes members who have made advances in physics through original research and publication or made significant innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology.

Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory is supported by the Office of Science of the U.S. Department of Energy. The Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
