University of Michigan Lab Tour (4 labs)

Tour participants will meet at the Cooley Mortimer bldg., 2355 Bonisteel Blvd., Ann Arbor, 48109. Mackenzie Warwick and Caiser Bravo will be your tour guides leading you through the campus facilities to the following labs. Please arrive by 1:50 to  obtain a parking pass and meet with the students in the lobby of the Cooley bldg.

Glenn F. Knoll Laboratory, 3040 NEL
Prof. Zhong He
Description: Develop room-temperature operational semiconductor high energy resolution gamma-ray imagers
Tour lead: Mr. Daniel Shy

Detection for Nuclear Nonproliferation Group, 1040 NEL
Prof. Sara Pozzi
Description: Laboratory focusing on neutron detection with organic scintillators. Primary applications include dual-particle imaging, fast neutron multiplicity counting, and active interrogation for hidden nuclear material detection.
Tour lead: Mr. Cameron Miller & Mr. William Steinberger

Mourou Center for Ultrafast Optical Science, 1254 ERB-2
Prof. Igor Jovanovic
Description: The Mourou Center for Ultrafast Optical Science (CUOS) is an interdisciplinary research center in the College of Engineering at the University of Michigan, founded by the 2018 Nobel Laureate in Physics, Prof. Gérard Mourou. It is a home for the 300 TW HERCULES laser, which has held a Guinness world record for the highest focused intensity for over 10 years. The tour will feature Lambda-Cubed, one of the three major laboratories in CUOS.
Tour lead: Mr. Patrick Skrodzki

Radiological Health Engineering Laboratory, 1943 Cooley
