News del 31/03/2014

The SUMMER SCHOOL on Neutron Detectors and Related Applications (NDRA-2014) will be held on 30th June - 4th July, 2014 in Riva del Garda, Trento, Italy.

PhD students and Post-Docs are invited to present a poster with a short oral introduction during a dedicated session of the school.

The aim of the school is to illustrate principles, methodologies and most recent applications of neutron detection technologies. In particular, the school deals with neutron-matter interaction principles suitable to neutron detection, materials for neutron detectors, signal processing, Monte Carlo simulation codes and interdisciplinary applications of neutrons. The school is addressed to Master Students, PhD Students, Post-doc and researchers with backgrounds in Engineering and Physics.

• Neutron interaction with materials.
• Principles of neutron detection.
• Inorganic and organic scintillators for neutrons.
• Solid state and semiconductor detectors for neutrons.
• Monte Carlo simulation techniques.
• neutron-gamma discrimination techniques.
• Neutron sources.
• Applications: material analysis, imaging, cultural heritage, medical.
