Harald Rose, professor of Physics at the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany has been elected a Fellow for the Microscopy Society of America (MSA). Rose is a pioneer in electron microscopy: Together with his colleagues Maximillian Haider and Knut Urban he was the first to make single atoms visible by using electron microscopy. The designation of “MSA Fellow” is intended to recognize senior members of the society who have made significant contributions to the advancement of the science and practice of microscopy imaging, analysis and/or diffraction techniques. The fellowship certificate will be presented to him during the Microscopy and Microanalysis 2009 meeting in Richmond, VA, US.

Yimei Zhu, a scientist at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory, has been elected the inaugural Fellow of the Microscopy Society of America, an affiliate of the American Institute of Physics and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Limited to a small fraction of members, the designation of Fellow recognizes senior distinguished members of the society who have made significant contributions to the advancement of the science and practice of microscopy. Zhu will formally be awarded the society’s first fellowship at its annual meeting in Richmond, Virginia, US, to be held in July. His citation reads: “For outstanding and innovative development and implementation of advanced electron microscopy techniques including quantitative diffraction, imaging, spectroscopy, and phase retrieval methods in understanding superconducting, ferromagnetic, and strongly correlated materials.”
