OBJECTIVE

Recent advancement of high power laser technologies enable us to open a new horizon of neutron sources along with conventional ones based on accelerators and nuclear reactors.

Various types of short-pulse, high-fluence neutron sources have been developed including laser-driven fusion, laser accelerated ion beams, and cluster-explosions. And, these neutrons are used in a wide variety of applications for such as electricity generation, transmutation for nuclear wastes, biomedical care, and material science.

Upon these backgrounds, a new forum will be held, setting laser-assisted neutron sources and applications as key terms, in order to overview the present status and future prospects of relevant fields. This forum will also provide an opportunity for participants to exchange mutual information and activate their own researches.

 

 


SCOPE

The 1st Conference on Laser and Accelerator Neutron Sources and Applications:

Neutron Sources
(laser fusion, accelerators, cluster explosion, laser-driven ion beams, photonuclear reactions, nuclear reactor, RI, et al.)

Control technologies
(energy, angular distribution, moderators, control system, et al.)

Neutron Diagnostics
(high resolutions in space, time and energy, sensitive imaging, et al.)

Applications
(nuclear transmutations, nuclear waste rocessing biomedical applications, fusion reactor wall, material investigations, fission-fusion hybrid-reactor, et al.)

 

 


FORMAT

Organized sessions will consist of invited oral presentations of 30 min. and contributed oral presentations of 15 min. duration including discussion. In addition to these regular oral sessions, poster presentation session will be planned to stimulate the discussion of the field. The auther(s) of papers will be informed of the size of bulletin board for displaying summary, figures, tables, etc., when selected as poster papers.

 

 


SUBMISSION OF PAPERS

Original papers that have not been previously presented and that describe new contributions in the areas covered by the descriptions above will be accepted for presentation.
Detailed instructions will be available soon.

Papers should be submitted electronically, no later than Dec. 20, 2012. Authors are requested to submit a summary paper written in English, that fits within a two-page 17 cm x 24 cm template, including text, figures, tables, and references. The template for papers is available here.
