UAHuntsville professor elected APS fellow

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (November 28, 2011) - Timothy B. Boykin, an electrical and computer engineering professor at The University of Alabama in Huntsville, was recently elected Fellow of The Council of the American Physical Society.
The Council of the American Physical Society (APS) made the determination during a meeting earlier this month upon the recommendation of the Forum on Industrial and Applied Physics. Election to APS Fellowship is recognition by peers of Professor Boykin's outstanding contributions to physics.
Boykin's research centers on the physics of quantum wells, superlattices, resonant-tunneling diodes, and other quantum-confined heterostructures. Most of his work has involved modeling these structures with empirical tight-binding techniques in order to include bandstructure effects.
Boykin received an undergraduate degree (summa cum laude) in electrical engineering from Rice University. He earned a master's degree and Ph.D., in electrical engineering from Stanford University.
