Stuart Jay Freedman (January 13, 1944 – November 10, 2012) was a physicist, known for his graduate work on a Bell test experiment with John Clauser as well as his contributions to nuclear and particle physics, particularly weak interaction physics. He was a graduate student at UC Berkeley under Eugene Commins, where he worked with fellow graduate student Steven Chu. He was also recipient of 2007 Tom W. Bonner Prize in Nuclear Physics.

In memory of his contributions, the American Physical Society (APS) established an award in his name, the Stuart Jay Freedman Award in Experimental Nuclear Physics.[1] He was elected a Fellow of the APS in 1984 for "important studies of weak interactions phenomena in nuclei."[2]
