Engineering Physics Department Colloquium

Materials science and applied systems with organic scintillator radiation detectors

Event Details

Tuesday, April 17, 2018
4-5 p.m.
Dr. Patricia Schuster, Department of Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences at the University of Michigan, will introduce a number of detector systems that employ organic scintillator materials for identifying, characterizing, and imaging radiation and radioactive sources. These include two of her latest projects: studying fission physics with the LANL LANSCE Chi-Nu array and designing a zero-knowledge nuclear warhead verification system with a coded aperture imager.
