Last year, the Microanalysis Society initiated the MAS Fellow program to recognize eminent scientists, engineers, and technologists in the field of microanalysis of materials and related phenomena who have distinguished themselves through outstanding research and service to the microanalysis community. This includes, but is not limited to technique development, applications, theory development, and distinguished service to the society. Election as a MAS Fellow will be highly selective but should represent a broad cross-section of the MAS membership. They are elected by their peers.

In 2018, the first class of “Legend Fellows” was recognized.  This class consisted the very most distinguished members of the community who through decades of involvement in the field and with the society could be considered to be “legends” in the field of X-ray microanalysis.

In 2019, the second class of fellows is being recognized under the title of “Inaugural Fellows.”  This class consists of the following members:

  • Ian Anderson
  • Phil Batson
  • Paul Carpenter
  • Bill Chambers
  • John Donovan
  • Vinayak Dravid
  • Ray Egerton
  • John Fournelle
  • Hamish Fraser
