Activated Samples workshop

The 'Activated Samples' workshop was held at The Bishops Lodge in Santa Fe, New Mexico, from September 20-22, 2009. Sponsored by Los Alamos National Laboratory, the workshop was dedicated to

  • identifying experimental characterization capabilities needed at neutron and x-ray national user facilities for the study of active samples for industrial, fission, fusion, and basic science. Specify time and spatial resolutions;
  • assessing ongoing and planned opportunities for measuring radioactive samples at existing neutron and synchrotron user facilities;
  • debating experimental methods needed for developing transformational insights into radiation damage and, with a decadal scope, debate opportunities that new diagnostics and experimental techniques might enable at new facilities; and
  • identifying top ten scientific discovery challenges and prioritized research activity opportunities or investments that could be initialized immediately or within the next 10 years implemented with near term (1-5 year) investment and activity that could be enabled by a new facility.

The meeting featured plenary sessions that offered multiple opportunities for informal discussions and collaborations.

In a month or so, a draft version of the workshop report will be made available. Within two months or so, a final version of the workshop report will be distributed.
