Steve Miller Receives Lab Director's Award for Exceptional Engineering Achievement

September 2007
Congratulations to ETD's Steve Miller on being honored with the 2007 Laboratory Director's Award for Exceptional Engineering Achievement. Steve received this award for his "pioneering work in fully-engineering science into a wide range of dosimetry and imaging products based on Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL)." OSL is a radiation detection technique based on exciting solid-state materials with light to induce luminescence. This technique is more sensitive than x-ray films and other options, is less expensive to manufacture, and can be read in a single second. Through an agreement with Landauer, the world leader in providing personnel radiation monitoring services, OSL is used in 90% of Landauer's products. In addition, OSL is the base technology for the company’s long-term strategic growth. Again, congratulations, Steve, on this important award!
