International Workshop on Fast Neutron Detectors and Applications

FNDA2006
April, 3-6, 2006
University of Cape Town, South Africa
The workshop has two main objectives. Firstly, it will aim at reviewing recent developments in the construction of neutron detectors for energies from the keV to the GeV range. This includes the improved understanding of basic processes in materials used for neutron detection as well as techniques and data relevant for modeling of neutron detectors. The second focus of the workshop will be on the applications of fast neutron detectors in various fields of science and technology. Both new emerging applications and novel techniques in established fields will be presented. In addition, methods and facilities for the production of fast neutrons will be discussed. The workshop will provide a forum for the exchange of information between the various communities using fast neutrons to carry out their specific tasks.

The proceedings of the workshop have been peer-reviewed by the international reviewer committee below.
