Becq’s passion for high-performance radiation shielding led to the development of the Becqshield product line. Whether you need weight savings, higher operating temperature, better radiation stopping power, or improved ease and cost of installation, Becq can supply a solution based on your specific needs. Instead of the traditional 'one size fits all' approach to shielding using borated polyethylene or lead, the Becqshield product line can be tailored for your source and constraints.
Becq is grateful for development funding from the following organizations:
Dr. Danielle Castley
completed her PhD in Materials Engineering at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH. Her research focused on neutron shielding materials in response to the commercial nuclear industry need for lightweight, high-temperature radiation shielding materials. Danielle previously completed her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA.
Dr. Bill Woodward, P.E.
has over 42-years of experience in the energy sector with expertise in bringing new technologies to a commercially viable product. After completing his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, he joined Westinghouse Electric Corp, contributing to reactor design and directing R&D as Executive Manager. Subsequently, as Senior Vice President for Holtec International, Dr. Woodward led international market development.
Dr. Ian J. McDonald
completed his PhD in Materials Engineering at Northeastern University applying neutron and high-energy X-ray radiation characterization techniques to study complex composite material systems. Ian previously completed his Bachelor’s and Master's Degrees in Materials Engineering at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA.
