Norman Edelstein, Two Other Berkeley Lab Scientists named AAAS 2013 Fellows

Three Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) researchers have been named Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Election as a AAAS Fellow is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers.

This year 388 members have been awarded the honor by AAAS because of their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications.

The three from Berkeley Lab are:

  • Stephen P. Cramer, Physical Biosciences Division, for the development and creative applications of synchrotron X-ray spectroscopy to bioinorganic chemistry
  • Norman Marvin Edelstein, Chemical Sciences Division, for distinguished contributions to the field of inorganic chemistry, with special emphasis on the synthesis, magnetic properties, and optical spectroscopy of complexes of the 4f- and 5f-elements
  • Glen Lambertson,┬áretired, Accelerator and Fusion Research Division, for fundamental contributions to accelerator science and technology including significant advances in beam electrodynamics that enable the operation of high luminosity electron and hadron colliders
