University Of Michigan To Lead Nuclear Non-Proliferation Effort
A 5 year $25 million dollar federal grant will help the University of Michigan lead a team of other universities and national laboratories conduct research and develop new technologies to work towards nuclear non-proliferation. The National Nuclear Security Administration is funding the effort.
Gilgenbach believes the university has long been a leader in nuclear measurements and the best gamma-ray camera for detecting nuclear materials was developed here. He thinks the effort is unique because it's bringing together both scientific leaders and policy experts.
In addition to U of M, the effort includes the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Princeton, Columbia, North Carolina State, University of Hawaii, Pennsylvania State, Duke, University of Wisconsin, University of Florida, Oregon State, Yale, and the University of Illinois. National laboratories include Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore, Sandia, Lawrence Berkely, Oak Ridge, Pacific Northwest, and Idaho.
