Dr. Steven Bellinger|
Dr. Steven Bellinger is working on high-efficiency
microstructured semiconductor neutron detectors. Dr. Bellinger developed
a mass production etching process to produce thousands of microscopic perforations
in Si substrates. He also developed a mass production process to backfill
the perforations with neutron reactive materials. These detectors
have been able to yield intrinsic thermal neutron detection efficiencies
greater than 42% as calibrated with He-3 gas filled detectors.
He is president and co-founder of Radiation Detection Technologies (RDT), Inc.,
a company that specializes in designing and fabricating compact neutron detectors
and custom semiconductor radiation detectors. Dr. Bellinger is a co-recipient
of four R&D 100 Awards in 2009, 2014, 2015, and 2017 for his
work on the development of new neutron detection technologies.
Dr. Bellinger has nine allowed U.S. patents with another patent pending.
