Wichita State University Physics faculty and their student doing research with them in Physics have received a gift from Bill Simon. Bill Simon is a Physics major and WSU alumni from 1970, and he went on to found Sun Nuclear Corporation, a major manufacture of nuclear radiation sensor heads such as CsI crystals. His substantial gift is directed towards Physics faculty who have undergraduate Physics majors working with them since he attributes his success to that type of research experience. The photo of Bill Simon above shows him working in a Physics research lab from the time he was a undergraduate at WSU.
