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. Dr. Montag helped establish the Kansas State Micro-Analysis Laboratory (KSMAL),
which is equipped with electron microscopes and x-ray diffractometers. Dr. Montag now works
at Radiation Detection Technologies (RDT), Inc.
