Dr. Ben Montag|
PhD NE 2015; Ben Montag joined the SMART Laboratory research team in the Fall semester of 2008.
Ben worked on Li-filled Nowotny-Juza compounds as solid-sate neutron detectors.
To date, he has produced the largest samples of LiZnAs and LiZnP crystals, and the
only such crystals have demonstrated neutron sensitivity. At graduation, Dr. Montag
had 8 refereed publications, 6 conference record publications with an additional
4 papers pending publication. Dr. Montag also was a co-recipient for a 2014 R&D 100
Award, for the development of Li-Foil Neutron Detectors. Dr. Montag presently oversees
the Electron Microscopy Lab in the SMART Lab while working part time with Radiation
Detection Technologies. He is also working to establish a center for the Kansas
State University campus, the Kansas State Micro-Analysis Laboratory (KSMAL),
which will be equipped with electron microscopes and x-ray diffractometers.
