Six researchers from the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have been elected fellows of the American Physical Society (APS).

The APS is one of the largest physics organizations in the world with more than 51,000 members in academia, government and industry. Fellows of the APS are recognized for their exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise in outstanding research, applications and leadership in or service to physics and physics education.

John Galambos, director of the Spallation Neutron Source Second Target Station Project Office, was cited by the APS Division of Physics of Beams for “outstanding leadership and vision in the design, commissioning and effective operation of high power hadron accelerators.”

Galambos has been involved in the design, construction, commissioning and operation of the Spallation Neutron Source, a DOE Office of Science User Facility, since 1996 and led the Source Engineering and Design Analysis group and Accelerator Physics, Beam Instrumentation and Ion Source group until 2015.
