Advances in Nuclear Radiation Detectors and Technologies
January 8-9, 2011, Rutgers University
The Workshop on "Advances in Nuclear Radiation Detectors and Technologies for Rare Isotope Science" will be held on January 8 and 9, 2011 at the Fiber Optics Auditorium of Rutgers University in Piscataway, NJ. The purpose of this Workshop is to bring together scientists and engineers to discuss new technologies and materials for charged particle detectors and scintillators and to develop a future program to bring these new technologies into the research laboratories. The timing of this workshop coincides with the construction of new accelerator facilities that produce beams of rare isotopes for basic and applied nuclear science research, including the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) http://frib.msu.edu/ in the US. More information can be found on the workshop website which will be continually updated:
Scientific Program and Format
Plenary Talks - Saturday morning. The program will begin Saturday January 8 in the morning with plenary talks that introduce scientists to current nuclear radiation detector research and development activities in nuclear, particle and plasma physics and emerging materials for radiation detection. The opportunities and challenges for radiation detectors and technology for rare isotope science will also be summarized. Parallel breakout sessions - Saturday afternoon. Breakout sessions on Saturday afternoon would focus on specific technologies such as new materials for scintillators to detect neutrons or photons, new semiconductor materials for charged particle detection, and the electronics needed to process signals. Topics of the breakout sessions have been chosen to reflect the interests of the registered participants. Please contact the breakout session conveners if you would like to make a presentation.
• Next generation of arrays of silicon detectors
• Next generation of arrays of scintillators
• Next generation charged-particle detectors (diamond, SiC, etc.)
• Next generation scintillator materials for neutrons and photons
• High granularity gas detectors and Si based gas amplifiers
• Active targets
• High-density electronics (digital, ASICs, etc.)
• Radiation robust detector systems
Plenary Session - Sunday Morning.
The Breakout Groups will report out on Sunday morning. This last session will also provide a forum to develop collaborations to realize new detector technologies and bring these new developments into the research laboratories of the future. The Workshop will end by 100pm on Sunday.
Registration and Accommodation
Please register on-line for the workshop at your earliest convenience via the workshop web page http://fsunuc.physics.fsu.edu/~SAWG/Rutgers/Rutgers_Workshop/Home.html and indicate your preferences for breakout groups. There is no registration fee. Lunch on Saturday will be provided at a cost of $10 per person which would be paid at the workshop. The deadline for registrations is December 27, 2010. A block of rooms has been reserved at the Hyatt Regency New Brunswick at the rate of $109 per night plus tax for double or king bedrooms from January 7 to January 9, 2011. Deadline for
lodging reservations is December 15, 2010. You can reserve your room through the conference website http://fsunuc.physics.fsu.edu/~SAWG/Rutgers/Rutgers_Workshop/Home.html
The Workshop will be held in the Fiber Optics Auditorium on the Busch Campus of Rutgers University in Piscataway, NJ. Lodging is available in downtown New Brunswick, a short drive from the Busch Campus. New Brunswick has excellent access to public transportation. The closest international airport is Newark Liberty International Airport. Train service is available on New Jersey Transit trains to New Brunswick from Newark Airport or New York City. The nearest Amtrak train station to New Brunswick/Piscataway is Metro Park in Iselin; New Brunswick or Piscataway can be reached by taxi from Metro Park. If you will be staying at the Hyatt in New Brunswick and will not have a car and will need, please indicate on the registration form your need for transportation to the workshop on the Busch Campus.
Limited funds are available to provide partial travel support for some advanced graduate students or postdoctoral scholars. If you are eligible and interested in this support, please contact Professor Jolie Cizewski at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, institution (advisor if graduate student), and a short statement describing how you expect to benefit from this workshop. Deadline is December 15, 2010. We regret that no funds are available to support the participation of more senior scientists.
