Foreign Fellows Elected 2018
(Effective from January 1, 2019)

Bhadeshia, Harshad Kumar Dharamshi Hansraj (b. 1953), Tata Steel Professor of Metallurgy, Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, 27 Charles Babbge Road, Cambridge CB3 0FS, UK.

Professor Bhadeshia has carried out important work on the theory of solid-state phase transformations, in particular the prediction and verification of microstructural development in multicomponent steels. He has made a major contribution to the understanding of the complex bainitic transformation to show that different modes of transformation have measurable influences on the final microstructure. This has impacted steel manufacturing industry.

Buckler, Edward S (b. 1970), Research Geneticist, USDA-ARS, Institute for Genomic Diversity, Cornell University, 159 Biotechnology Bldg, Ithaca, NY 14853-2703.

Professor Edward Buckler has made outstanding contribution to understand the genetic basis of trait variation, and to use this natural variation to improve crops. He is the pioneer leader in unifying quantitative genetics with genomics, and then applying these technologies and approaches to a wide range of crops.

Cheetham, Anthony Kevin (b. 1946), Goldsmiths’ Professor of Materials Science Emeritus, Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB0 3FS.

Professor Anthony K Cheetham is one of the world’s leading materials chemists. His principal achievements have been in four distinct areas: Structural properties of materials, especially with neutron and synchrotron X-ray methods; Catalysis with zeolites and other materials; Oxides for solid-state lighting and Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs).

Payne, David Neil (b. 1944), Director, Optoelectronics Research Centre, University of Southampton, Southampton, SO17 1 BJ, United Kingdom.

Professor Payne’s contributions in fibre fabrication in the 70’s resulted in almost all of the special fibres in use today. He led the team that in 1985 first announced the silica fibre laser and the Erbium-Doped Optical Amplifier (EDFA), the device that fuelled an explosive growth in the internet through its ability to transmit and amplify vast amounts of data. The fibre laser is now also undergoing rapid growth for application in manufacturing and defence.

Sachdev, Subir (b. 1961), Department Chair and the Herchel Smith Professor of Physics, Department of Physics, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA.

Professor Subir Sachdev is a world renowned condensed matter theorist, with many seminal contributions to the theory of strongly interacting condensed matter systems. He is a pioneer in the study of systems near quantum phase transitions. He has also pioneered the exploration of the connection between physical properties of modern quantum materials and the nature of quantum entanglement in their many-particle state, elucidating the diverse varieties of entangled states of quantum matter.
