Over his career Mark made many significant contributions to semiconductor-materials research, most recently in relation to swift heavy ion irradiation of materials and synchrotron-based characterisation. He was a great collaborator, with a broad network of national and international colleagues, many of whom have visited the ANU over the years. He also supervised many students and postdocs who have gone on to make their own contributions to ion-beam and semiconductor research. Above it all Mark was a great friend and colleague and will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
Mark’s funeral will be held at Norwood Park Crematorium, Canberra, Tuesday 15 December at 4.30pm.
In lieu of flowers Mark asked that donations be made to Clare Holland House. A funeral notice will be published in the Saturday edition of the Canberra Times.
Collection envelopes will be available at the funeral. Donations can be made to Clare Holland House or to Juile Arnold (EME DA). Cards can be sent to: Pat Ridgway, C/- RSPE, 60 Mills Rd, Acton ACT 2601
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
