Imaging and Neutrons 2006
October 23-25, 2006
Spallation Neutron Source, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, TN
IAN 2006 is directed to a broad-based international scientific community
who wish to advance progress in the use of neutrons in a wide range of
imaging applications. Many scientific disciplines use imaging
techniques, from biology and medicine to industrial applications in
engineering, homeland security, materials science and chemistry. The
technique of neutron radiography was first used extensively in Europe in
the 1930s, and over the past several decades, significant advances have
been made in neutron tomography. Other techniques that will be explored
include microscopy, holography, neutron stimulated emission computed
tomography, and neutron magnetic resonance. In addition, mathematical
techniques involving advanced reconstruction algorithms and software
development will be noted along with enhancements of the current
technologies utilized in design and operation of current neutron
Goals and Expected Outcomes
1. Identify the current needs and potential contributions of
imaging with neutrons in a wide range of science and areas of
2. Recognize new imaging techniques that may be made possible by
advanced next generation sources that go beyond established techniques
of radiography and tomography.
3. Produce a report identifying both potentially valuable imaging
techniques and directions for additional research and investment to
realize this potential worldwide.
Requests are actively solicited for presentation of contributed talks
and posters at IAN2006. The topics and posters proposed should be
relevant to this workshop.
We anticipate a limited number of scholarships up to $500 will be
available to graduate students and early career faculty from U.S.
academic institutions to attend the meeting AND present a poster. These
scholarships are provided through the generosity of the Joint Institute
for Neutron Sciences and the Oak Ridge Associated Universities.
