Consortium for Verification Technology (CVT) Associate and recent graduate Dr. Michael Hamel demonstrates a 2-D augmented reality visualization of gamma ray imaging at the University of Michigan’s Nuclear Engineering Laboratory. Two sources (hotspots) are shown in the image. The instrument used to acquire these images is the Dual Particle Imager (image, bottom), developed by the CVT group at the University of Michigan (led by Prof. Sara Pozzi). The imager is also capable of fast neutron imaging and energy spectroscopy.
