Dr. Steven Bellinger

Dr. Steven Bellinger
BS-ME 2005, PhD-NE 2011; Dr. Steven Bellinger worked on high-efficiency microstructured semiconductor neutron detectors. Steven 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 3He gas filled detectors, for which Dr. Bellinger was a co-recipient of an R&D; 100 award. At graduation, Dr. Bellinger had 26 published papers in archival journals and conference records, one allowed patent and two patents pending. After graduation, Dr. Bellinger started a company, Radiation Detection Technologies (RDT), Inc., that specializes in delivering compact neutron detectors and custom semiconductor radiation detectors. Since then, his company RDT, Inc., has been the recipient of many research and development contracts for novel radiation detectors and electronics. Dr. Bellinger is the co-recipient of four R&D 100 awards presented during the years 2009, 2014, 2015, and 2017. Advisor: Douglas S. McGregor
