2017 Neutron Resonance Analysis School

Nov 06 2017
Nov 10 2017

The fourth Neutron Resonance Analysis School will be hosted at the EC-JRC in Geel, Belgium from November 6th to 10th 2017.

This school is intended to provide an overview to the measurement and analysis techniques associated with neutron induced reactions alongside the nuclear theory governing these reactions.

Lectures and hands-on computer exercises will be alternated. Topics include neutron-induced reactions (including elastic and in-elastic cross section measurements), the optical model and its link to the resonance region, neutron time-of-flight measurements, integral measurements, nuclear astrophysics, nuclear data libraries and more.

The school is aimed at PhD students, post-docs and researchers working in the field related to neutron time-of-flight measurements and neutron resonance analysis. Since the capacity of receiving participants is limited, priority will be given to applications of PhD students and post-docs.

The school is organised within the Framework Programme 7 (FP7) project CHANDA (Solving Challenges in Nuclear Data for the Safety of European Nuclear Facilities), and in collaboration with the UK Nuclear Data Network.


Deadline for applications: 08 September 2017

You will be notified whether you are selected for participation to the school. In that case you will be requested to supply additional information for access to the JRC.
