Professors Jones and Majumder Elected APS Fellows (2008)

The American Physical Society (APS) has elected Prof. Kevin Jones and Prof. Tiku Majumder to the status of Fellow. Each year the APS elects no more than one half a percent of its membership to Fellow status.

The APS cited Jones “for seminal contributions to the study of cold collisions and to the development of photoassocation spectroscopy in ultracold gasses.”

It honored Majumder “for precision measurements of atomic structure that test atomic theory and probe the basic laws and symmetries of nature, and for engaging talented undergraduate physics students in making such measurements.”

Jones and Majumder join Williams Professors Bill Wootters, Jay Pasachoff, Stuart Crampton, and David Park as APS Fellows.
