IRC Director, Professor Kai Vetter, has been elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society “for pioneering contributions to fundamental radiation detection techniques, particularly gamma-ray imaging, and important societal applications.”
The criterion for election is exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise; e.g., outstanding physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, or significant contributions to physics education. Fellowship is a distinct honor signifying recognition by one’s professional peers.
In June 2015, he was also honored with the American Nuclear Society Presidential Citation for his exceptional commitment and dedication to advancing nuclear science and technology, and outreach to the community to analyze and explain the impact of nuclear on the environment.
