Henry Everitt, an Adjunct Professor of Physics at Duke and a Senior Research Scientist at the Army's Aviation and Missile RD&E Center at Redstone Arsenal, AL, has been named a 2016 Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

He is among four Duke faculty and 391 scholars nationwide honored this year for their advancement of scientifically or socially distinguished research.

Everitt is being recognized in the AAAS section on Physics for “pioneering spectroscopic investigations of wide bandgap semiconductors and ultraviolet plasmonic nanostructures, terahertz holography, and nascent federal programs in quantum information, photonic crystals, and nanotechnology.” His research explores how materials can be used to manipulate electromagnetic waves in new and unexpected ways.
