From the Department of Defense to Ann Arbor
MEASURING RADIATION INTENSITY ANDY BOUCHER, H3D
It isn’t everyday we get to meet University of Michigan students working for the Department of Defense, but Andy Boucher did just that at the beginnings of his PhD study in the Nuclear Engineering department. After finding a need in the government, specifically Homeland Security, for 3D imaging of Gamma Ray Imaging Spectronics, Andy worked with the Center for Entrepreneurship and Tech Transfer to license this technology to bring to market. He and his research team soon worked together at the Ann Arbor company H3D to develop, assemble, and sell these advanced devices used in power plants to measure the intensity of radiation.
