Professor Glenn Knoll was a beloved member of the NERS faculty, and the Knolls’ loyal and sustained support remains evident throughout the Department’s activities today, including through the annual Glenn F. Knoll Lecture in Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences. Lothar Strüder, CEO of PNSensor and Professor at the University of Siegen, Germany presents his lecture, “High-Speed Imaging and Spectroscopy of X-Rays and Particles with Silicon Detectors”.
“Glenn’s first love was his students and their research. He always enjoyed the contact he had with graduate students. This lecture series is a way that Glenn’s legacy can encourage engagement between University of Michigan students and researchers in radiation measurement,” says Gladys Knoll, Professor Knoll’s wife. “The NERS department has been like an extended family to the Knoll family, and it has been a delight to us to see it grow both in size and prestige. Glenn and I both took pride in the achievements of the faculty and their graduates, and we felt that they, collectively, did work that makes our world better and safer. This is part of our legacy, too.”
