A/Prof John Hartnett

Physics, Cosmology (Australia)

Biography

John G. Hartnett received both his B.Sc. (hons) and his Ph.D. with distinction from the Department of Physics at the University of Western Australia (UWA). He works as an ARC DORA research fellow in the Institute of Photonics and Advanced Sensing and the School of Chemistry and Physics at the University of Adelaide.

John’s research interests include the development of ultra-stable cryocooled microwave oscillators based on a sapphire crystal, ultra low-noise radar and ultra-stable optical cavities for advanced optical clocks. He has a keen interest in cosmology and how it applies to the creationist world-view. He has published more than 100 papers in scientific journals.

Awards

Dr Hartnett was announced as the winner of the 2010 W.G. Cady award by IEEE Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control Society.

The W.G. Cady Award recognizes outstanding contributions in the fields of piezoelectric or other classical frequency control, selection and measurement and resonant sensor devices.

The citation reads: “for the construction of ultra-stable cryogenic sapphire dielectric resonator oscillators and promotion of their applications in the fields of frequency metrology and radio-astronomy.
The award will be presented during the 2010 IEEE International Frequency Control Symposium at Newport Beach, California in June.

Last year’s winner was Sir Eric Ash.
