Martin Centurion, Susan J. Rosowski Associate Professor of Physics, was elected a 2020 Fellow of the American Physical Society.

Fellowships recognize members who may have made advances in physics through original research and publication; significant, innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology; significant contributions to the teaching of physics; or service and participation in the activities of the Society.

The APS, founded in 1899, exists to advance and diffuse physics knowledge. They are the world's second-largest organization of physicists and publish more than a dozen scientific journals.

Centurion, who was nominated by the organization's Division of Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics, heads the Centurion Group at the university.
