[Neutron] Workshop on SoNDe application ­ Neutron detection in research and industry -- Deadline Extension

Fri Jul 8 17:10:38 CEST 2016

Dear Colleagues,
After receiving a number of interesting applications for presentations there
some open slots to present at our workshop about the SoNDe neutron detector
concept and the application in science and industry. Therefore we extended
the deadline for applications to the 19th of August and hope for interesting
contributions from you.

Please find further details at

Best regards
On behalf of the organizing committee
Sebastian Jaksch

SoNDe is a project for the development and construction of a high-flux
capable neutron detector funded by the European Union within the Horizon
2020 framework. The development focuses on the following specifications:
·       high-flux capability, capable of handling the peak-flux of
up-to-date spallation sources (gain factor of 20 over current detectors)

·       high-resolution of 3 mm by single-pixel technique, below by

·       high detection efficiency of 80 % or more

·       no beam stop necessary, thus enabling investigations with direct
beam intensity

·       strategic independence of 3He

·       time-of-flight (TOF) capability, necessary to exploit maximum flux,
with a time resolution in the µs regime

·       modularity, improving maintenance characteristics of today¹s neutron

This project includes partners from France (Laboratoire Léon-Brillouin),
Norway (IDEAS) and Sweden (ESS and Lund University) and Germany
(Forschungszentrum Jülich).
This workshop will be dedicated to making the new SoNDe detector concept
known within its various user communities. These range from basic research
facilities to industry and security applications, where the detection of
neutrons or Xrays is needed. During the workshop there will be both
presentations by the developers as well as users and a hands-on session,
where a working prototype can be examined in working conditions.
