Dr. Steven Bellinger

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.
