Biographies

Clive Keith Coogan was an inventor and expert in solid state physics who also went on to work in science education and promote pathways for the development of the Australian scientific instrument manufacturing industry. Between 1959 and 1961 he completed pioneering work on the diffusion of hydrogen into titanium hydrides. Among other scientific instruments devised while working at the CSIRO, in the 1970s Coogan invented and patented a Fibre Optic Nephelometer which advanced the efficiency of measuring turbidity - a measurement vital to many chemical and physical processes. Coogan became Assistant Chief of the CSIRO Division of Chemical Physics in 1978, and two years later was named executive scientist to the CSIRO Bureau of Scientific Services.
