Dr. Ben Montag

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 6Li-Foil Neutron Detectors. Dr. Montag presently oversees the Electron Microscopy Lab in the SMART Lab while working part time with Radiation Detection Technologies. He helped to establish a center for the Kansas State University campus, the Kansas State Micro-Analysis Laboratory (KSMAL), which is equipped with electron microscopes and x-ray diffractometers.
