A look into the revolution of new compact accelerator-based neutron sources

Neutrons are a unique probe to study the structure and dynamics of matter. The advent of high-intensity compact accelerator-driven neutron sources (HICANS) will make access to  neutrons easier than today’s sources. With HICANS, large universities and research centres will be able to host their own neutron sources, gaining independence from large facilities using nuclear reactors or spallation sources.

IMoH Conference 2022 will analyse the following main topics:

Day 1. State of the Art and Applications of HICANS

Day 2. Neutron Science

Day 3. Opportunities and Challenges of HICANS
