Sponsor(s): Japan Society of Nuclear Track Detectors: The Graduate School of Maritime Sciences, Kobe University: Division of Ionizing Radiation, Japan Society of Applied Physics

It provides the opportunity to exchange the recent achievements on the fundamentals and applications of Solid State Nuclear Track Detectors, including space radiations and hadron therapy. A lecture on Madam Curie will be also made for general publics.

The 26th Workshop on Solid State Nuclear Track Detectors

Date: 14th & 15th March 2011

Venue: Fukae-campus, Kobe University

This series of workshops has been providing annual opportunities to exchange recent achievements on the fundamentals and applications of Solid State Nuclear Track Detectors, in which the trajectory of energetic proton and heavy ions in some dielectric materials are visualized by chemical treatments. This is a passive radiation detector used in various branches of science and technology such as nuclear physics, cosmic rays, dosimetry in space, neutron dosimetry, radiation biology and so on. On the fundamental aspects, the formation process of tracks in solids has been an unsolved problem in a filed of radiation chemistry. The developments of new materials for SSNTD have been conducted under the help of polymeric chemistry. A memorial lecture on Madam Curie who was awarded the Novel prize for chemistry in 1910 will be also made for general publics.


Topic: conference Audience: professional chemist, students, general public, post graduate students, university professors
