Dr. Martin Ohmes|
BS-EE 2003, MS-NE 2006, PhD-NE 2012; Dr. Martin Ohmes worked on a research project with
Dr. McGregor and Dr. Shultis developing Micro-Pocket Fission
Detectors (MPFD) for use as real time power density monitors in a nuclear reactor core.
Martin presently works at FLIR (formerly ICx) in Tennessee. As part of his research, Dr. Ohmes
designed and fabricated what were at the time the tiniest fission
chambers in existence. These devices are capable of operating in pulse, mean-square voltage
and current mode, depending upon reactor power levels. At the time of graduation, Dr. Ohmes
had five publications.
Advisor: Douglas S. McGregor
Martin is working in a vacuum-gas fill glove box system he built for filling the MPFD with gas.
2 AM and still going! Martin is trying to finish up some circuitry for the uranium electroplating system, ASCEFI.
