Publish and Patent? You CAN Do Both

I review many of the published research or research focused press releases and news articles coming from UNH. As a publicly funded state institution, I recognize that publishing research and disseminating information is not only the faculty’s highest concerns, but also UNH’s top priority. However, commercializing UNH’s innovations is an integral part of the University’s long-term mission. 

Imaging Radiation in Space, Imaging Radiation in our Backyards

Medical imaging isotopes transported on the highway. Improperly disposed radioactive research materials. Industrial site monitoring. Dirty bombs. Detecting radioactive materials at ports and border crossings before they enter the US.

If we can image radiation in the galaxy, what about imaging radiation in our backyards?

Answer: NSPECT – A Portable Imaging Neutron and Gamma-Ray Spectrometer
