Waks Named 2017 APS Fellow

Waks Named 2017 APS Fellow


Prof. Edo Waks (ECE/IREAP/JQI) has been named a 2017 American Physical Society Fellow.

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.

Prof. Waks was nominated for the honor by the society’s Division of Laser Science (DLS) for “significantly advancing the field of quantum photonics and for developing new concepts to strongly interact solid-state quantum emitters with nanophotonic devices." 

Prof. Waks is a member of the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics and of the Joint Quantum Institute and oversees the Nanophotonics and Quantum Information Research Group at UMD.

Each year, no more than one half of one percent of the total APS membership is recognized by their peers for election to the status of Fellow in the American Physical Society.
