Novel Technology Development and Transfer is a major component of RDT’s business strategy. RDT supports technology development through internally-funded R&D and U.S. Government SBIR & STTR grant awards allow us to to investigate innovative ideas while developing new capabilities and products that are then commercialized. This research based approach to product development allows us to help our customers stay on the leading edge of technology.

Who We Work With:

Federal Grants

24+ SBIR/ STTR government contracts







S.M.A.R.T. Lab

The Semiconductor Materials and Radiological Technologies (S.M.A.R.T.) Laboratory at Kansas State University is a unique facility dedicated to the research and development of new and innovative radiation detector technologies. A variety of detectors are investigated and fabricated, which include compact low-power neutron detectors, high-resolution room-temperature-operated semiconductor gamma ray spectrometers, pixelated devices for gamma ray or neutron imaging, and miniaturized gas-filled detectors. The facility is available to students and faculty for research and development of devices requiring standard equipment for VLSI processing and device fabrication. As a result, the S.M.A.R.T. Laboratory serves as a center for undergraduate and graduate student education as well as a facility to accommodate funded research projects from various government and industrial sponsors.
