Welcome to Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences

Michael Hamel, NERS PhD Student, uses a Microsoft Hololens headset to demonstrate use of augmented reality to detect the presence of nuclear weapons in the Nuclear Engineering Laboratory on June 21, 2017. The technology is designed by the Consortium for Verification Technology (CVT) led by Sara Pozzi, NERS Professor. The CVT consists of twelve leading universities and nine national laboratories, working together to provide research and development needed to address technology and policy issues in treaty-compliance monitoring of nuclear weapons.
