Stocks in this article: DYSL

Dynasil Corporation of America (NASDAQ: DYSL) and Gerald Entine, Ph.D., Founder and President of the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD), announced the promotion of Kanai S. Shah, Ph.D., RMD’s Vice President of Research and the leader of the Material Science Group, to President of RMD, Inc. effective January 1, 2012. Dr. Entine, 68, will continue as a member of Dynasil’s board of directors and beginning in January will assume the role of President Emeritus of RMD.

Stated Dr. Entine, “What could be more rewarding than watching your long-time friend and collaborator take over the institution you created. I am most pleased that Kanai has accepted this challenge and look forward to watching RMD continue to prosper under his leadership.”

Dr. Shah, 50, joined RMD in 1985 as a Staff Scientist. Initially he was involved in a program aimed at stabilizing low energy X-ray detectors for NASA, and then managed a variety of research projects focused on semiconductor and scintillator detectors. He worked briefly for Canberra Industries in the early 1990s, investigating high-purity germanium gamma-ray detectors and high resolution, low noise silicon X-ray detectors. He rejoined RMD as a Senior Scientist in 1993, advancing to Director of Research in 2002 and Vice President of Research in 2009. He has been responsible for new semiconductor and scintillator development at RMD for more than 10 years and is widely regarded as a leading expert in this field.

Dr. Shah received a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from India’s Gujarat University in 1983, a master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Lowell (now the University of Massachusetts Lowell) in 1987 and a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from the Delft University of Technology in 2010. His doctoral research focused on investigation of new scintillator and photodetection technologies for use in medical imaging, particularly positron emission tomography. Dr. Shah has been awarded five U.S. patents and has authored more than 80 technical papers. In 2007, he received a performance award from the Department of Homeland Security’s Domestic Nuclear Detection Office.
