NDRA 2018 - Summer School on Neutron Detectors

Registration is open

2 - 5 July, 2018
Versione stampabile

Venue: Riva del Garda Centro Congressi

The aim of the school is to illustrate principles, methodologies and most recent applications of neutron detection technologies. In particular, the school will tackle various arguments that span from neutron interaction principles, materials for neutrons detectors, neutron sources, Monte Carlo simulation codes, up to applications with neutrons.

The school is addressed to PhD students, Post-Docs and young researchers with backgrounds in Engineering and Physics.

TOPICS

- Neutron interaction with materials
- Physics of neutron detectors
- Materials for neutron detection
- Monte Carlo simulation
- Gas detectors for neutrons
- Neutron sources
- Application of neutron detectors.
