In 1962, Basov was elected a Corresponding Member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, and in 1966, he was elected an Academician of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR.

Nicolay Basov was the Editor-in-Chief of the Nauka (Science), Kvantovaya Elektronika (Quantum Electronics), and Priroda (Nature) journals and a member of the Editorial Board of the Kvant (Quantum) journal. N. Basov and A. Prokhorov were awarded the Lenin Prize in 1959, and in 1964, in collaboration with Ch. Townes, they received the Physics Nobel Prize for "fundamental work in the field of quantum electronics, which has led to the construction of oscillators and amplifiers based on the maser-laser principle".
