Like its namesake, the lighthouse directional radiation detector is all about maintaining a safe distance from harm. Whether the goal is confirming absence of radioactive materials or tracking them, the latest engineering innovation by Jonathan Dowell and colleagues brings us a radiation-detection tool with immense potential to keep workers and the public safe. An R&D 100 finalist for 2018, the detector has real world applications including use in hospitals, with HAZMAT robots, and at universities to name a few. Join us for a conversation with Jonathan Dowell and learn about this peanut butter jar-sized detector, its multi-environment capabilities, and how it’s poised to change the world of radiation detection.

Join us at UnQuarked Wine room in Los Alamos for a short, informal presentation followed by lively questions, answers, and discussion.

All ages are welcome to attend.
