On April 12, 2024, Yale Physics inducted 19 members (see below) from the undergraduate classes of 2024 and 2025 to Sigma Pi Sigma, the official honor society of the physics profession. Through election to Sigma Pi Sigma, distinctive achievement and high scholarship in physics are recognized and celebrated. An organization of the American Institute of Physics, and a member of the Association of College Honor Societies, founded in 1921, there are more than 100,000 historical members. Membership is lifelong and includes a one-year complimentary membership in the Society of Physics Students (SPS). Yale Physics joined Sigma Pi Sigma, the National Physics Honor Society, as Chapter #584.

Sarah Demers, professor of physics and director of undergraduate studies, commented, “Sigma Pi Sigma is a wonderful organization, focused on community and service. I’m thrilled that Yale joined in 2020 and that we’ve been able to have so many of our students earn the honor of participation over the past few years.”

Since joining, we have held induction ceremonies for undergraduate junior and senior students who qualify for the honor—a GPA above a certain level and have taken Quantum Mechanics.

Sigma Pi Sigma exists to  honor  outstanding scholarship in physics and astronomy, to encourage interest in physics and astronomy among students at all levels, to promote an attitude of service, and to provide a  fellowship  of persons who have excelled in physics and astronomy.
