Pada bulan Februari, satu pengumuman telah dibuat dunia bahawa untuk kali pertamanya ahli-ahli sains daripada LIGO Scientific Collaboration dan Virgo Collaboration telah menyaksikan riak-riak pada fabrik ruang-masa yang dipanggil gelombang graviti, tiba di bumi dari sebuah peristiwa bencana dari satu alam semesta yang jauh. Penemuan ini mengesahkan ramalan utama teori umum relativiti Albert Einstein dan membuka ruang pengetahuan baru mengenai alam semesta.

Gelombang graviti tersebut dikesan oleh pengesan Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO), yang berpangkalan di Amerika Syarikat. Pasukan saintis antarabangsa yang terlibat termasuk pasukan dari Institute for Gravitational Research dari Universiti Glasgow yang menerajui pembangunan kepada penggantungan cermin sensitif yang diletakkan di tengah-tengah pengesan LIGO.

Hafizah membuat kajian mengenai sifat-sifat salutan cermin pada ‘laser interferometers’ dengan tujuan untuk mencari cara-cara untuk membuat ia lebih sensitif pada masa hadapan. Beliau adalah ahli daripada dua kumpulan penyelidikan – Materials and Condensed Matter Physics (MCMP) Group dan Institute of Gravitational Research (IGR).

Anugerah Ikon Belia diberikan oleh Kerajaan Malaysia bukan sahaja untuk mengiktiraf pencapaian tetapi juga untuk menggalakkan anak-anak muda lain untuk mengikut jejak langkah penerima anugerah.

Hafizah berkata:

“Anugerah ini adalah amat menggalakkan dan ia akan memberikan saya motivasi untuk menjadi orang yang lebih baik. Saya berharap dengan menerima anugerah ini, ia akan menarik minat generasi muda untuk melangkah ke dalam bidang sains.”

Profesor Sheila Rowan, penyelia bersama Hafizah dan Pengarah Institute for Gravitational Research Universiti Glasgow, menyifatkan anugerah Ikon Belia sebagai “terrific”, sambil menambah:

“Ia mengiktiraf kepentingan sains dan kepentingan anak-anak muda dalam bidang sains kerana mereka adalah orang yang akan melangkah keluar dan mengubah dunia kita.”

A University of Glasgow PhD researcher is to become the “Youth Icon” of Malaysia in recognition of her contribution to Gravitational Waves research.

Hafizah Noor Isa, 29, will receive the highly prestigious award on Sunday, May 15, from the Prime Minister of her home country, Najib Razak, at a conferral ceremony in Kuala Lumpur.

In February, it was announced to the world that for the first time that the scientists of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and Virgo Collaboration had observed ripples in the fabric of spacetime called gravitational waves, arriving at the earth from a cataclysmic event in the distant universe. This discovery confirmed a major prediction of Albert Einstein’s 1915 general theory of relativity and opened an unprecedented new window onto the cosmos.

The gravitational waves were detected by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors, based in the USA. The international team of scientists involved included a team from the University of Glasgow’s Institute for Gravitational Research who led on the development, of the sensitive mirror suspensions implemented in the heart of the LIGO detectors

Hafizah is studying the properties of the mirror-coatings of the laser interferometers with the aim of finding ways to make them even more sensitive in the future. She is a member of two research groups – the Materials and Condensed Matter Physics (MCMP) Group and the Institute of Gravitational Research (IGR).

The Youth Icon award is given by the Government of Malaysia in recognition of achievements but also to encourage other young people to follow in the footsteps of awardees.

Hafizah said:

“The award is really overwhelming and it is going to give me the motivation to be a better person. I hope that by giving me this award it will attract more young people to come into the field of science.”

Professor Sheila Rowan, co-supervisor of Hafizah and Director of the University’s Institute for Gravitational Research, described the Youth Icon award as “terrific”, adding:

“It recognises the importance of science and the importance of young people in science because they are the people who are going be go out and change our world.”
