American Physical Society names three Princeton fellows

Two Princeton faculty members and a research physicist at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory have been named fellows by the American Physical Society.

The new fellows are Antoine Kahn , professor of electrical engineering; Stanley Kaye, principal research physicist at the plasma physics laboratory; and Peter Meyers, professor of physics .

The society's fellowship program was created to recognize original research and publication, contributions in the application of physics to science and technology, contributions to the teaching of physics, or service and participation in the society. The honor is a lifetime appointment.

Kahn, who holds a Ph.D. in computer science from Princeton, was recognized "for pioneering work on the atomic and electronic structure of surfaces and interfaces of organic and inorganic semiconductors."

The society cited Kaye "for pioneering investigation of confinement characteristics of strongly heated tokamak plasmas that serves as a foundation for predictions of confinement trends of modern tokamak and spherical torus plasmas."

Meyers was honored "for contributions to rare kaon decay experiments, service and leadership in the particle physics community, and for communicating the excitement of the field to expert and non-expert alike."
