Are you interested in helping to shape the future?

The Rad IDEAS group at UT-Knoxville researches Radiation Imaging, DEtectors, Algorithms and Systems for the technologies of tomorrow. At our core, we are problem solvers. Our radical ideas are geared toward solving fundamental science and engineering challenges of significance to our nation and world.

Our main research focus is sensor and system development for radiation imaging, as well as algorithms for improved, quantitative analysis of the generated data. Our interdisciplinary research is conducted mainly in dedicated lab space at the University of Tennessee or in facilities available at the nearby Oak Ridge National Laboratory. We pride ourselves on reporting our findings in peer-reviewed publications.

We are thankful for the generous support of our sponsors including the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Energy, the Department of Defense, the National Science Foundation, and UT-Battelle. We are also proud to be part of a department, college, university, and local community dedicated to excellence and continuous improvement. The future belongs to us.
