SCANS – A Compact Accelerator-Driven Neutron Source for Scandinavia?
16-12-2019 @ 12:00 - 17-12-2019 @ 12:00
The European countries are currently facing a serious neutron drought since several reactors are undergoing shutdown, the European Spallation Source (ESS) will not have a fully-fledged user program until 2025-2026 and other European large-scale facilities (ISIS, ILL and PSI) are heavily overbooked. There is a serious need for establishing additional neutron sources, especially in Scandinavia. It is believed that Compact Accelerator-driven Neutron Sources (CANS) could fill the gaps left by the closure of small/medium-power nuclear reactors.
The workshop is organized by the Department for Neutron Materials Characterization at IFE. Funding is provided through the Nordic Neutron Science Program and its topical networks.
Venue: Quality Hotel Olavsgaard (Skjetten, Norway) .
