The 2018 Symposium on Radiation Measurement and Analysis (SORMA XVII) event was held at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor campus. SORMA’s focus has expanded over the decades to include the amazing breadth of ionizing radiation measurement applications and technologies.
Dr. Kanai Shah, President of RMD (Radiation Monitoring Devices, a Dynasil Company) spoke at the 2018 Symposium on Radiation Measurement and Analysis (SORMA XVII) event on new developments and emerging trends in scintillation materials. Dr. Shah is a world-renowned thought leader in this field. He holds 23 US patents and has authored 200 technical papers. He is also the recipient of the Outstanding Performance Award from the US Department of Homeland Security’s Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) for his research on new semiconductor and scintillator materials. His current research on semiconductors covers TlBr, B2Se3, LiInSe2 and Tl2SeI4. His research on novel scintillators and semiconductors has led to commercial licensing agreements with multinational companies as well as in-house products. Under his supervision, RMD has successfully commercialized six scintillator technologies over last five years. Dr. Shah has been a P.I./PM on several DOE, NIH, DNDO, DOD, and NSF grants.
