Chalmers' Physics' Professor Elected as 2021 APS Fellow

​Christian Forssén, Professor at the Department of Physics, has been named a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
Christian Forssén has been elected a 2021 Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) as recognition of his outstanding contributions to physics. Christian Forssén is Professor in theoretical physics and Head of the division of Subatomic, High Energy and Plasma Physics. 

Each year, no more than one half of one percent of the Society’s membership is recognized by their peers for election to the status of Fellow of the American Physical Society. APS’ citation for electing Christian Forssén is as follows: 

“For first-principles calculations of the structure of nuclei, especially near the drip-lines, and for the development of precision nuclear forces through innovative uses of statistical methods.”

Recognizes advances in physics

“I am very honoured that my peers have elected me to join the exclusive company of APS fellows, which indeed includes many international celebrities in physics research. Hopefully this will further strengthen our ties with scientists in the United States,” says Christian Forssén.

The APS Fellowship Program was created to recognize members who may have made advances in physics through original research and publication, or made significant innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology.

The addition of Christian Forssén to the APS Fellowship Program, brings the total count of APS Fellows from Chalmers University of Technology to five.
