Zhong He Spoke as Part of the Hochreiter Lecture Series
By Shea Bracken
Zong He, professor of nuclear engineering and radiological sciences at the University of Michigan, recently spoke to mechanical and nuclear engineering faculty and students as part of the Lawrence E. Hochreiter Distinguished Lecture Series.
He’s lecture was titled “Polaris to Orion 3-D CdZnTe Gamma-Neutron Imaging Spectrometers.” The talk focused on the University of Michigan Polaris technology and its applications in nuclear power, national security, international nuclear non-proliferation, homeland security, medical imaging, fundamental physics, and planetary sciences.
The Lawrence E. Hochreiter Distinguished Lecture Series in Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering was created by Hochreiter’s family to commemorate the extraordinary career of Hochreiter. Hochreiter was professor of nuclear engineering from 1997 to 2008 when he passed away. Prior to coming to Penn State Hochreiter spent 25 years at Westinghouse Energy Systems Business Unit's Nuclear and Advanced Technology Division.
