Congratulations to W. Vincent Liu for being named a 2017 Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) by the Division of Atomic, Molecular & Optical Physics.

Vincent was elected for elucidating Landau damping of collective excitations in Bose-Einstein condensates, advancing the study of spin-polarized Fermi gases by introducing the concept of breached pair superfluidity, pioneering the theory of higher orbital bands in optical lattices, and working with experimentalists to confirm the theory.
