Conference and other news

Photo (a) and a fast neutron image (b) of the Li-fueled reactor, post-operation. The flat and dark-field corrected radiographic image reveals a heat exchanger coil, the upper highly oxidized region (dark-gray), and the lower, primarily non-oxidized, elemental Li-rich portion (light gray). The image was taken over four minutes of exposure time. The red line represent roughly the beam size at the detector position.

News from Argentina that due to the deteriorating COVID-19 situation, the 6th ITMNR meeting in Buenos Aires has been postponed.

The Paul Scherrer Institute PSI, Switzerland have advertised for a PhD student to work on "Neutron radiography investigations of hydrogen redistribution in irradiated zirconium claddings". Applications must be submitted before 30 June 2020. 

Apply online.

Prof. Fayçal KHARFI extends an invitation to attend the 1st International Conference and School on Radiation Imaging (ICSRI-2020), to be held on November 22-26, 2020 at Ferhat Abbas University, Setif, Algeria.

After 40 years of successful neutron research in Berlin-Wannsee, the research reactor BER II was finally shut down at the end of 2019. It will be dismantled over the next two decades.

The WCNR-11 conference in Sydney was a big success and the proceedings have become available at
