    RMD Develops CLYC Crystals

    CLYC Packaged Scintillation Detector

    In response to the Helium 3 shortage, RMD developed CLYC (Cs2LiYCl6:Ce) scintillation crystals consisting of Cesium, Lithium, Yttrium, and Chlorine, doped with Cerium and with the Lithium enriched in 6 Li. When utilized in a radiation detector, CLYC gives first responders the ability to identify the presence and type of nuclear radiation.

    RMD Develops Ultra High Speed X-Ray Imaging

    RMD developed an ultra-high-speed, high-resolution, X-ray imaging system capable of acquiring images at a rate of 120,000 frames per second (FPS) for the Department of Defense. The system was based on a fast-decay scintillator screen coupled to an ultra-fast CCD camera designed for ballistic impact studies. A specially designed X-ray source provided blur-free images of hypervelocity projectiles traveling over 18,000 miles per hour.

    Radiation Monitoring Devices Inc. (RMD) Founded

    RMD, a Dynasil CompanyRMD was founded by Dr. Gerald Entine to manufacture CdTe radiation detectors for use in nuclear power plants, medicine, and research. 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. Today, RMD is recognized worldwide as a foremost expert in the fields of radiation detection and imaging, nuclear instrumentation, and non-destructive testing (NDT) and instrumentation.
