Banner promoting the 8th RaDIATE Collaboration Meeting, June 26 to 30, 2023 at Brookhaven National Laboratory

Annual RaDIATE collaboration meetings provide a forum for discussion between experts in this specialized domain. Collaboration members gather at a different host institution’s laboratory each year to address topical issues associated with radiation damage in the accelerator target’s environment.  

Topics discussed include:

  • Facilities design and operation
  • Applications with radiation damage concerns
  • Radiation damage studies
  • Low-energy irradiation studies
  • High-energy proton irradiation studies
  • Thermal shock studies
  • Radiation-tolerant material development
  • Irradiation facilities
  • Post-irradiation examination and remote handling techniques
  • Radiation damage modeling
