Yang named 2020 APS Fellow

Lan Yang, the Edwin H. & Florence G. Skinner Professor of Engineering at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, has been elected a 2020 Fellow of the American Physical Society.


No more than one-half of 1% of APS members are elected fellows.

Yang was nominated for her “seminal contributions to non-Hermitian photonics, optical sensing and nanophotonics.” She will receive her certificate at a ceremony during the annual meeting of the APS Division of Laser Science.
