Dan Lathrop selected as the recipient of the American Physical Society's 2012 Stanley Corrsin Award

Dan Lathrop was selected as the recipient of the American Physical Society's 2012 Stanley Corrsin Award. The award was established to recognize and encourage a particularly influential contribution to fundamental fluid dynamics.

Professor Lathrop was chosen for, "his striking observations of flow in a quantum fluid including detection of counter-flow that confirmed the two-fluid picture of quantum fluid, observation and characterization of reconnections of quantized vortices, and the discovery of an inverse-cube tail in the velocity distribution of superfluid turbulence."
