Honor Recipients

At April Meeting 2022, APS was proud to honor researchers and students for their exemplary contributions to the physics community.

Recognizing excellence

APS was founded more than a century ago for the advancement and diffusion of the knowledge of physics. One way we fulfill that mission is by recognizing significant contributions to physics with prizes, awards, and fellowships. These honors are highly regarded, and represent critical recognition from the recipients’ most discerning audience: their peers.

We were pleased to honor 28 recipients at the 2022 April Meeting. These prizes and awards highlight the diversity and vitality of physics, and acknowledge physicists across all career stages and subfields, internationally.
