Professor of Physics John Harlander is co-author on a paper that has won the prestigious 2010 Alan Berman Research Publication Award from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) recognizing outstanding publications for their quality and significance. Harlander was honored at the Alan Berman Research Publication Award Dinner in Washington D.C. The paper, "Spatial Heterodyne Imager for Mesospheric Radicals on STPSat-1," published last March in the Journal of Geophysical Research details results obtained from a near-ultraviolet spectrometer that flew aboard the satellite STPSat-1 making measurements of the Earth's upper atmosphere between March 2007 and October 2009.
