    Detector Scientist

    ESS, European Spallation Source ERIC

    – Neutron scattering facility under construction, to be world’s most powerful neutron source when complete.

    Lund, Sweden


    Proved the advantages and reliability of the novel detector technology, Multi-Grid, within ESS and the neutron community; resulting in its acceptance as baseline at ESS.

    Coordinated the ESS effort on construction of a full-scale prototype detector, including setting up of production of 1024 detector elements and related parts.

    Managed teams of engineers (mechanical, electronics, software) and technicians in the production of 3 test detectors and 2 detector prototypes with 900k Eur total budgets.

    Delivered two complete detector systems – from conception to successful installation and test at the ORNL, USA – to specifications and within 1 year each.

    Created the project scope, budget and schedule plan for a 3.9M Eur final detector production.

    Executed multiple neutron tests (over 10 within Europe) and 2 testing campaigns at the Oak Ridge National Lab, ORNL, US.

    Collaborated with ESS internal teams and external partners from EU and overseas.

    Demonstrated that boron-10 detector technology could replace and surpass the performance of existing helium-3 technology in rate capability – x100 improvement and in cost – x2.5 lower cost.

    Convinced the users of this technology that they now had a solid alternative to the traditional technology.

    Developed a technology with mass-production, vacuum compatibility and assembly technique challenges.

    Published 8 reports and peer-reviewed articles, 4 conferences presentations.

    Learned to execute tests as a tool to characterize and project performance.

    Transferred the know-how from the ILL to the ESS.
