The American Physical Society (APS) has elected Flavio Fenton and Carlos Silva to the Society's 2019 Fellows. Fenton is a professor in the School of Physics. Silva is a professor in the Schools of Chemistry and Biochemistry and of Physics.

Fenton and Silva are among 168 APS members named as fellows in 2019. Their election is prestigious peer recognition of their outstanding contributions to physics.

Fenton is recognized “for ground-breaking contributions to the nonlinear dynamics of cardiac arrhythmia.” He was nominated by the APS Topical Group on Statistical and Nonlinear Physics.

Silva is recognized for “groundbreaking development of ultrafast laser techniques for probing the transient photophysics of electro-optical and excitonic materials leading to novel and unique insights into charge-separation and carrier generation in organic photovoltaic systems.” He was nominated by the APS Division of Chemical Physics.

“I am very honored to be elected to the APS Fellowship and am deeply grateful to my mentors, students, postdocs, and collaborators, past and present.” Silva says. 

The APS Fellowship Program recognizes members who have made exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise in physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, or significant contributions to physics education.

Each year, no more than 0.5% of the APS membership is recognized by their peers for election to the status of Fellow in the American Physical Society.
