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 presently working on
a neutron spectrometer array and large panel arrays of semiconductor detectors.
He recently started a company, Radiation Detection Technologies (RDT),
that specializes in delivering compact neutron detectors
and custom semiconductor radiation detectors. Dr. Bellinger is a co-recipient
of three R&D 100 Awards, one in 2009, another in 2014, and a third in 2015, for his
work on the development of new neutron detection technologies.
Dr. Bellinger has four allowed U.S. patents with another patent pending.
