The EPS has distinguished following members as EPS Fellows 2016:
- Luc Bergé, French Commission for Atomic Energy, CEA, Paris, FR
For his outstanding theoretical contributions to the wave propagation in nonlinear media and for his service to the European Physical Society.
- Eberhard Bodenschatz, Max-Planck-Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization Göttingen, DE
For contributions to the dynamics of pattern formation, thermal convection and in particular to Lagrangian turbulence, as Editor in Chief of the New Journal of Physics, and his role promoting opportunities for European researchers.
- Reinhard Brinkmann DESY Hamburg, DE
For his outstanding leadership and achievements in accelerator physics and technology, including ground-breaking solutions for modern free-electron lasers and linear colliders based on super-conducting accelerator technology and the success of longitudinally polarized electron beams in the HERA collider.
- Sydney Galès, Institut de Physique Nucléaire, Orsay, FR
For his decisive contributions to the strategic roadmaps taken on national and international level with regard to the important orientations related to the physics of the nucleus, and to the associated accelerator and instruments technologies.
- Victor Malka, Laboratoire d’Optique Appliquée Palaiseau, FR
For his major contributions for the development of compact laser-plasma accelerators, and for their innovative applications for science (ultra fast phenomena, accelerators physics) and society (medicine, radiobiology, chemistry and material science).
- Karlheinz Meier, Kirchhoff Institute for Physics, Univerity of Heidelberg, DE
For substantial service to the particle physics community, exceptional contributions in bringing physics to bear in other disciplines, especially neuromorphic computing, and his commitment to inspire young scientists.
