Dynasil's RMD Subsidiary Selected as a Winner for R&D 100 Awards

Date Announced: 04 Nov 2019

Newton, MA, November 4, 2019 –Dynasil Corporation of America (OTC: DYSL) today announced that its contract research subsidiary, RMD Inc., was selected as a winner for the 2019 R&D 100 Awards as announced by R&D World magazine.

Widely recognized in industry, government, and academia as a mark of excellence for the most innovative ideas of the year, the R&D 100 Awards are the only industry-wide competition rewarding practical applications of science. Since 1963, the R&D 100 Awards recognize the most promising new products, processes, materials, or software developed throughout the world and introduced into the market during the previous year. Awards are based on each achievement's technical significance, uniqueness, and usefulness compared to competing projects and technologies.

Conceived and first reduced to practice using RMD’s own resources and then further developed under grants from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the U.S. Department of Energy, RMD’s Multi-mode Elpasolite Scintillator, CLLBC will serve as a combined gamma-neutron detector for the next generation of high performance security and defense instruments, requiring less power, with lower weight and lower cost enabling greater distribution of these types of instruments.

RMD’s President, Dr. Kanai Shah, stated that, “CLLBC and other RMD successes are based on the implementation of a commercialization model in which multi-agency support is leveraged to transition a technology from the research phase to maturity and launch it into the marketplace.”

In recent years, RMD has been honored with R&D 100 awards for Triplet Harvesting Plastic Scintillators (2014) and for SrI2:Eu Scintillators (2010) and was also an R&D 100 Award finalist for LiSr2I5:Eu Scintillator Technology (2016).
