About Professor Wehe

Professor Wehe

Professor Wehe has been involved in radiation detection and measurements for ca. 30 years.  Upon graduation from the University of Michigan, he taught physics at the United States Naval Academy, followed by work as a consultant to the electric power industry on instrumentation and system reliability issues.    At the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, he developed instrumentation for the High Flux Isotope Reactor and applied physics-based approaches for estimating physical parameters.  Since joining the faculty at the University of Michigan in 1986, he has been actively teaching laboratory courses in Radiation Measurements, and performing research in radiation detector development and imaging systems.  He served as the Director of the Michigan Memorial Phoenix Project, which included the 2-MW Ford Nuclear Reactor. His interests span applications in nuclear medicine, astrophysics, non-proliferation and treaty verification, and industrial imaging.  He was named as a Eugene P. Wigner Fellow of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and awarded the State of Michigan Teaching Award for excellence in higher education.  Professor Wehe is a consultant to industry and the National laboratories on instrumentation development.  He served on the IEEE Radiation Instrumentation Steering Committee, the National Nuclear Forensics Science Panel (NFSP), Editor for the journals Nuclear Instruments and Methods and Nuclear Energy and Technology, and is the standing General Chairman for the International Symposium on Radiation Measurements and Applications (SORMA) series.   He has authored over 200 papers.
