Four Faculty Earn APS Fellow Distinction
COLLEGE STATION —
Texas A&M University Professors Olga Kocharovskaya, Wayne M. Saslow, Sherry J. Yennello and M. Suhail Zubairy have been elected as 2005 Fellows of the American Physical Society.
Each year, no more than one-half of one percent of the organization’s current membership is selected by their peers for inclusion in the APS Fellowship Program, which was created to recognize advances in knowledge through original research and publication, innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology, and significant contributions to the teaching of physics or service.
Kocharovskaya, a professor of physics who joined the Texas A&M faculty in 1998 and was recently honored with a University-level Distinguished Achievement Award for Research, is cited “for her pioneering works on lasing without inversion, electromagnetically induced transparency, and laser control of gamma-ray nuclear transitions.”
Saslow, a professor of physics who has been on faculty at Texas A&M since 1971 as both a decorated researcher and teacher, is cited “for insightful contributions to the theory of superfluidity in 3He-A and in solids, and for seminal work on spin glasses and random magnetism.”
Yennello, associate dean for diversity in the College of Science, a professor of chemistry and a member of the Cyclotron Institute who joined the Texas A&M faculty in 1993, is cited “for her forefront experimental investigations of isospin equilibration in intermediate-energy nucleus-nucleus collisions and the dynamics and thermodynamics of highly excited nuclear matter.”
Zubairy, a professor of physics and associate director of Texas A&M’s Institute for Quantum Studies since 2000, is cited “for his pioneering and wide ranging contributions in quantum optics with special emphasis on quantum computing and quantum noise quenching in lasers and optical amplifiers.”
