Professor of physics from Kaiserslautern honoured by American Physical Society for outstanding peer review
Professor Dr Artur Widera, who conducts research on quantum systems at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern (TUK), is honoured by the American Physical Society (APS) as Outstanding Referee. The award is granted annually to selected members of the more than 74,000 APS reviewers worldwide. In this way, APS acknowledges the quality of its members in the reviewing of scientific papers.
Before a scientific article is published in a scientific journal, experts verify the quality of the content in order to maintain scientific standards, readability and quality of the publications at a high level. And so does Professor Widera. Every year he reviews numerous contributions from the fields of atomic and quantum physics, including for the renowned „Physical Review“ journal family of the APS. The editors of the APS thereby confirm, among other things, his high level of quality, the large number of reviews and timeliness. Together with 147 other researchers worldwide, APS now honours him for his work as APS Outstanding Referee 2020.
Since 2010, Professor Dr Artur Widera has been researching individual quantum systems and ultracold superfluids at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, investigating, among other things, quantum control at an atomic level.
