4th Joint Workshop of RIKEN RAP and JCNS

22 - 24 June 2020, by webinar

The Japanese RIKEN Center for Advanced Photonics (RAP) and the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) held their fourth joint workshop on compact accelerator-driven neutron sources (CANS)  on 22 – 24 June, 2020 as a special webinar due to the current travel restrictions world wide.

The workshop tackled common research topics regarding the development of target, moderator and instrument systems for CANS at both institutes.
