It is with profound sadness that we must inform you that Dr. Kanai Shah, President of RMD, has passed away. Kanai was a gifted leader and a brilliant scientist who deeply cared about RMD and the people he worked with. He took great pride in the work that RMD performed and how it benefited our society.
Kanai built a very strong team of talented people who are committed to carrying RMD’s work into the future. RMD will continue to operate, and we will meet all of our obligations. We are committed to continue the legacy of his innovations and leadership through research, product commercialization, and strong collaborations.
Dr. Michael Squillante will step in as interim President. Dr. Squillante has been the Vice President of Research at RMD since 1990 and is eminently qualified to guide RMD as we move into the future.
Cs2LiLa(Br,Cl)6 (CLLBC) is a high-resolution, high-light yield, dual-mode scintillator for simultaneous gamma-ray and neutron detection with excellent Pulse Shape Discrimination between gamma-rays and neutrons.
GLuGAG:Ce3+ ceramic garnets have high density, high light yield, fast emission and good energy resolution, highly suitable for radiography applications.
RMD is a leading manufacturer of state-of-the-art radiological and nuclear instruments. Thermal and Fast neutrons Multiplicity Counter (MC-TF) is a field-deployable device for first responders to quickly assess in real-time and with high confidence the threat level posed by a suspected nuclear weapon.
RMD pioneers in manufacturing large-area scintillation films and Advanced, high frame rate, modular X-ray Camera capable of acquiring high-speed, high-resolution, high-contrast images of dynamic phenomena.
RMD in collaboration with Sandia National Laboratories has developed novel organic scintillator material that is capable of gamma-ray spectroscopy, efficient fast neutron detection and excellent pulse shape discrimination.
RMD has developed methods for production of NaI crystals with ultra-low background for dark matter searches.
Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD), is recognized worldwide as a foremost expert in the fields of radiation detection, high-speed imaging, nuclear instrumentation, and non-destructive test equipment. Since 1974 RMD’s mission has been to conduct world-class research and develop industry-leading commercial products. Today, that mission is undertaken by more than 60 scientists and engineers who are more often shaping materials research and development rather than following it. Its research and products are utilized in a wide range of scientific fields, from space exploration to particle physics, and from nuclear security and safeguards to clinical diagnoses and environmental research. It holds a vast portfolio of intellectual property, including over 72 granted U.S. patents.
U.S. government agencies, including the DHS, DoE, DTRA, DoD, NIH, and NASA support RMD’s work in developing specialized radiation detection technologies to make the world a safer and healthier place. RMD has been the recipient of two Tibbett’s Award in recognition of its outstanding contributions to the SBIR program. It is also a recipient of the Small Business Achievement Award from the DHS. RMD has successfully commercialized its research into many new technologies. RMD is passionate about working on the most cutting-edge technologies in radiation detection and high-speed imaging and invites inquiries from collaborators, research partners, and customers.
