Fast Neutrons For The Next Decade and Beyond’ Workshop

The Neutron Workshop took place at iThemba LABS from 4-6 February 2019. The main aim of the workshop was to discuss the current status of the iThemba LABS neutron beam facility; plans for refurbishment/upgrade and the expectation of the fast neutron science communities. This is to prepare the iThemba LABS neutron beam facility for possible niche experimental research programmes and to grow future collaborations. In addition to delegates from local institutions, leading experts from various facilities in Europe (12 in total), and one from the United States of America actively participated in this workshop. The discussions covered the following topics in neutron science research; neutron metrology; neutron theory and evaluation; neutron facility descriptions and associated instrumentation; and several physics programs around neutron induced reactions studies.
