Biographies

Jak Kelly was Chairman of the Faculty of Science, University of New South Wales 1984-1989 and Associate Professor and Head of the School of Physics 1985-1989.

Jak Kelly was appointed to the School of Physics at the University of New South Wales in 1961 ultimately becoming the Chair of the Faculty of Science. In his research he specialised in ion beam deposition, patenting several improvements. During his PhD studies on thin-film at the University of Reading he invented Electron Bombardment Deposition which became the standard method of high temperature metal evaporation. While at the Atomic Energy Research Establishment, Harwell, he focussed on radiation damage in crystals, grown using his own single drop method. Other research, in collaboration with others, involved thermoluminescent dating, using ion implantation to improve the attachment of bone cells to prosthetic surfaces, the modelling and deposition of thin-film solar energy absorbers, irradiation of wool using ion beams to improve wool properties, studying low energy nuclear reactions, and proposing laser fusion improvements.
