Scope and objectives
The Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences and Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague, invite you to the 10th European Conference on Luminescent Detectors and Transformers of Ionising Radiation to be held in Prague, September 9-14, 2018. LUMDETR2018 will continue the tradition established by the previous meetings in Latvia (Riga, 1991), Estonia (Tallin, 1994), Poland (Ustron, 1997), Latvia (Riga, 2000), Czech Republic (Prague, 2003), Ukraine (Lviv, 2006), Poland (Krakow, 2009), Germany (Halle, 2012), Estonia (Tartu, 2015). This conference provides an interdisciplinary forum for the presentation of the latest developments in basic and applied research in the field of radioluminescence, the processes of energy transfer and storage in solid state systems, the physics and chemistry of luminescent phosphor and scintillation materials, and related applications.
Invited lectures will be given by leading scientists to introduce the main
topics of the conference. Both oral and poster presentations will create the
body of the conference program. Delivered manuscripts will be refereed and
we intend to publish them traditionally in the
journal Radiation Measurements (Elsevier Publ. House).
