Scope and Objectives

The scope of the UCANS-I Meeting encompasses technical and scientific issues pertinent to compact accelerator driven neutron sources. The objectives include

  1. To consolidate the UCANS organization and membership,

  2. To identify areas of cooperation,

  3. To determine near-to-long term R&D goals and schemes of collaborations among member institutes, and

  4. To clarify the roles of UCANS in the development and utilization of neutron-sources and related accelerator driven technologies.

The official language of the meeting is English.

Focused topics include, but not limited to, accelerator & beam optics, target radiation damage & heat removal, moderator neutronics, optics devices & detectors, innovative instrumentation, and emerging science and novel applications that are relevant to long-pulse medium-flux neutron sources.
