The Neutron Workshop will take place at iThemba LABS from 4-6 February 2019.
Attendance will be free of charge, however delegates will have to register. Teas and lunches will be provided.
The organising committee of the iThemba LABS ‘Fast Neutrons for the next Decade and Beyond’ Workshop have the pleasure of inviting you to the upcoming workshop to be held in Cape Town, South Africa on the 4-6th February 2019.
iThemba LABS is in a process to renovate the neutron beam line and the experimental vault to meet the requirements of the broader neutron science community. The current vault was designed and built about 30 years ago, and is capable of providing quasi-monoenergetic neutron beams with 30 – 200 MeV energies using the (p,n) reaction on thin Li and Be targets. In line with the iThemba LABS plans for the next decade and beyond, management has approved plans to develop the neutron beam facility to be more relevant to the users and available to the wider neutron science community.
The aim of the workshop is to discuss the current status of the iThemba LABS neutron beam facility, plans for upgrade and the expectation of the fast neutron science communities. More emphasis will also be given to possible experimental programmes and to develop future collaborations.
There will be ample opportunity for formal and informal discussions for any presentations on related topics. Some of the topics to be discussed will include; nuclear structure studies with neutrons; neutron metrology, fast neutron applications and accelerator based neutron sources.
We invite you as a leading expert in your field, and as an interested party in the experimental programme at iThemba LABS and for advancing collaborations to attend the workshop.
Registration will be open from 24 December 2018.
We look forward to seeing you in Cape Town in February 2019!
