Lin-Wang Wang Named APS Fellow
December 1, 2006
The American Physical Society (APS) has named Lin-Wang Wang a fellow in the Division of Computational Physics, an honor bestowed on scientists who have made outstanding contributions in the field.
Wang, a member of the Scientific Computing Group within CRD, specializes in nanoscale electronic structure research. His fellowship certificate contains a citation that recognizes his “development of new computational algorithms in electronic structure calculations of large nanostructures.”
The APS plans to publish Wang’s fellowship appointment, along with other fellows named this year, in the March 2007 issue of APS News.
The APS is the world’s largest professional group for physicists, with 45,000 members worldwide. Check out the list of fellows at http://www.aps.org/programs/honors/fellow ships/2006-fellows.cfm.
About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab
The Computing Sciences Area at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory provides the computing and networking resources and expertise critical to advancing Department of Energy Office of Science research missions: developing new energy sources, improving energy efficiency, developing new materials, and increasing our understanding of ourselves, our world, and our universe.
Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 13 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit energy.gov/science.
