Dynasil Corporation of America (Nasdaq: DYSL) announced that its contract research subsidiary, RMD Inc., has received grants totaling $1.86 million under the U.S. Department of Energy's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs.
"RMD continues to be recognized as providing world class research in the areas of scintillation and nondestructive testing technologies," said Peter Sulick, Dynasil's CEO and President. "These awards underscore RMD's pivotal role in applying material science and nondestructive technologies to new detection and analysis methods for high energy physics research, and the detection of defects in concrete structures in nuclear power plants."
Two Phase II GrantsSBIR/STTR Phase II DOE programs represent funding for the principal R&D effort, with awards up to $1 million over two years. RMD received two Phase II grants of approximately $1 million each for the following:
- Eddy Current Technology – Further development of RMD's magnetic solid-state sensor arrays for inspecting nuclear power plant infrastructure. RMD's technology will provide more enhanced capabilities than are currently available for detecting defects in components encased in concrete.
- Ultra-Pure Scintillators – Development of ultra-pure Sodium Iodide scintillators to enable dark matter studies to determine how the galaxies were formed and whether or not the universe will expand forever. So important is dark matter research to our understanding of the size, shape and the ultimate fate of the universe, that the search for it will very likely dominate astronomy for the next few decades.
"From the development of imaging devices designed to 'see' through the walls of nuclear power plant concrete structures to gamma-ray detectors that enable the next generation of dark matter studies, the Phase II research projects we are embarking on through these SBIR/STTR Programs embody some of the world's most pressing high energy physics and energy production research needs," said Kanai Shah, Ph. D. President of Dynasil's RMD subsidiary. "Dynasil is proud to partner with the Department of Energy on these initiatives."
