About K8

Dr. Sam Hsu helped pioneer solid state dosimetry with his first invention, patented in 1980. Since then, he has developed numerous variants including underwater detectors, and area and portable monitors. Tens of thousands of dosimeters and many real-time radiological access control systems have been designed by Dr. Hsu for customers on almost every continent. His dosimetry products once held 90% of the solid state market share in the US.

In 2002, Dr. Hsu developed K8, a miniature radiation detection device ideal for all day personal carry. Thousands of K8s have been sold worldwide to law enforcement, first responders, hospitals, schools, national laboratories and private citizens. Due to K8’s innovative concept, Dr. Sam Hsu was invited as a keynote speaker by the NATO Advanced Research Workshop in Warsaw, Poland.
