Nuclear Photonics 2016

Date So, 16.10.2016 - Fr, 21.10.2016
Time All day
Location Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa in Monterey, California
Program Nuclear Photonics 2016 is intended to be the first in a biennial international series of meetings devoted specifically to the pursuit of photon-based nuclear science and applications, i.e. nuclear photonics. This exciting field of study is being enabled by the development of ultra-bright, tunable gamma-ray sources based on laser-Compton scattering and by the establishment of international, laser user facilities with systems capable of reaching highly-relativistic intensities and of enabling photo-nuclear interactions. The investment worldwide in technology and facilities of relevance to nuclear photonics now exceeds several billion US dollars.

Topics of interest to the 2016 meeting include but are not limited to

- Compton gamma-ray sources and related accelerator technologies
- Ultrahigh intensity lasers and related optical technologies
- NRF-based, isotope-specific materials detection, assay and imaging
- Production and photo-excitation of isomers
- Photo-fission and nuclear transmutation
- Ultra-relativistic laser-matter interactions and QED effects
- Production and characterization of rare isotopes
- Photon-enabled nuclear cosmology
- Advances in gamma-ray monochromators, optics and detectors
- Photon-based beams of positrons, neutrons, electrons, protons etc.
- Potential industrial, security, energy and medical applications

The meeting structure for NP 2016 will include communal meals to facilitate interactions between participants and a trade exhibit to enable interactions with vendors of importance to the growth of the community. Important dates and logistics information may be found on the conference web site (below).

We sincerely hope that you will be able join us in Monterey this October!
