University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) Institute for the Development and Commercialization of Advanced Sensor Technology (IDCAST)
With participation from Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Engineering and the Research Institute, the $28 million award to IDCAST coupled with a multi-million dollar award from the Air Force has propelled the external sponsorship for our researchers to record highs in this fast growing area of research. The intersection of electro-optics, sensors and materials holds the key to incredible future discoveries in this area
UD has one of only six electro-optics Ph. D. programs in the United States.
