Prof. Chunlei Guo and Prof. Todd Krauss elected Fellows of the American Physical Society

Professor Chunlei Guo, professor of optics, has been named a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) for his pioneering contributions in laser-matter interactions and applications, including the discoveries of the black and colored metals and exploring their wide range of applications.

Professor Todd Krauss, who holds a joint appointment at the Department of Chemistry and the Institute of Optics, has been elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS). Todd is being recognized for outstanding contributions to the field of nanoscience, especially the photophysics of nanoscale semiconductors, including groundbreaking discoveries of the fluorescence properties of single carbon nanotubes and individual semiconductor nanocrystals. 

The APS is a non-profit membership organization working to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics through its outstanding research journals, scientific meetings, and education, outreach, advocacy and international activities. APS represents over 50,000 members, including physicists in academia, national laboratories and industry in the United States and throughout the world. Society offices are located in College Park, MD (Headquarters), Ridge, NY, and Washington, DC. The Division of Chemical Physics (DCP) within the APS, exists to provide a forum for those who work to understand a broad range of chemical systems, from atomic collisions to complex materials, in terms of the behavior of the individual atoms and particles that make up the system.

Both faculty members will be inducted as APS Fellow during the March, 2013 meeting to be held in Baltimore, Maryland.

Congratulations Todd and Chunlei!
