APS members are eligible for nomination and election to Fellowship. Each nomination is evaluated by the Fellowship committee of the appropriate APS division, topical group or forum. Fellowship is therefore a distinct honor signifying recognition by one's professional peers. After review by the APS Fellowship Committee, the successful candidates are elected by APS Council.
Paul Crowell was nominated by: Magnetism & Its Applications (GMAG)
Citation: For the application of elegant optical and transport techniques to the study of spin dynamics and transport in metals and semiconductors and experiments probing the excitation spectra of inhomogeneously magnetized systems, particularly magnetic vortices.
