WMU physics professor named APS fellow

Feb. 2, 2006

KALAMAZOO--Dr. Arthur McGurn, professor of physics at Western Michigan University, has been selected as a fellow of the American Physical Society.

McGurn was cited for his "pioneering work on the theory of phase coherent multiple scattering effects from rough surfaces and thin films," as well as for his research in nanostructure photonics.

Each year, the APS recognizes no more than one-half of 1 percent of its membership with election to the status of fellow. The organization's fellowship program was created to recognize members who have advanced the discipline though original research and publications or who have made significant innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology.

McGurn has been a WMU faculty member since 1986.
