Some of his key achievements included:
* Representing Australia on the Consultative Committee for Standards for the Measurement of Ionising Radiations of the International Committee for Weights and Measures, in Paris.
* Published some 15 research papers with other members of his Group
* He was an active member of the AAEC/ANSTO and the ANZSNM

More about Dr. Lowenthal
Since the 1960s, Dr Lowenthal served on the research staff of the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation, ANSTO (formerly the Australian Atomic Energy Commission, AAEC).
Dr Lowenthal was the leader of a small group which established the Australian Standards of Radioactivity. In the mid-1970s he became the Australian Representative on the International Committee for Radionuclide Metrology (an independent organisation of specialists) and was invited to represent Australia on the Consultative Committee for Standards for the Measurement of Ionising Radiations on the International Committee for Weights and Measures, Paris.
He has published some 50 research papers with other members of the group and for six years was honorary Australasian Editor of the International Journal of Applied Radiation and Isotopes. He is currently Honorary Consultant for Nuclear Medicine at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and an Honorary Consultant in the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of New South Wales. It was largely for his contributions to radionuclide metrology that he was named (in 1994 in Paris), Chevalier de l'Ordre National du Merite and, in 1999, was made a Member of the General Division of the Order of Australia (AM).
