Nuclear Photonics 2018

Date So, 24.06.2018 - Fr, 29.06.2018
Location Brasov, Romania
Program Meeting Purpose
The field of photon–based nuclear science and applications is rapidly evolving being driven by the worldwide development of ultrahigh intensity lasers and quasi-monochromatic gamma beam systems based on laser Compton scattering. Nuclear Photonics 2018 aims at bring together leading scientists, researchers and research scholars from around the world involved in the development of ultrahigh intensity lasers and gamma beam systems, nuclear physics and applications to exchange and share their experience and most recent results in the field.

The Conference is the second edition of the biennial series devoted to the pursuit of nuclear science and applications with photons.

Fundamental nuclear science and spectroscopy, laser–plasma nuclear physics, high intensity laser–plasma interaction, nuclear medicine including radiography and radiotherapy, industrial non-destructive material imaging and evaluation, isotope-specific, nuclear materials detection and management, photon-based hadron beams and applications, photon-based production of rare isotopes, photon-enabled pulsed neutron generation and science, photon-enabled pulsed positron generation and science, nuclear astrophysics and cosmology, gamma-ray science above the giant dipole resonance, strong field QED.
