August 17, 2016

Newton, MA, August 17, 2016 –Dynasil Corporation of America (NASDAQ: DYSL) today announced that its contract research subsidiary, RMD Inc., was selected as a finalist for the R&D 100 awards.

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 the practical applications of science.  The R&D 100 Awards recognize the most promising new products, processes, materials, or software developed throughout the world and introduced to the market the previous year.  Awards are based on each achievement’s technical significance, uniqueness, and usefulness compared to competing projects and technologies.

Developed under a grant from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), RMD’s Multi-mode Alkaline Earth Halide Scintillator – LiSr2I5:Eu (LSI) will serve as a multi-mode detector for the next generation of nuclear non-proliferation and homeland security instruments.  LSI will serve as the foundation for compact, high performance hand-held instruments utilizing less power, with lower weight and lower cost enabling greater distribution of these types of instruments.

RMD was previously honored in 2014 with a R&D 100 award for its Triplet Harvesting Plastic Scintillators.
