Partners participation in a new neutron beamtime at PTB

As a continuation of the beamtime on February, the set of CRNS (cosmic-ray neutron sensing) sensors were irradiated again at the PTB Ion Accelerator Facility (PIAF) in the week from 11 to 14 March 2024 for a different set of well-defined energies of "artificial".  In neutron metrology, these so-called neutron reference fields are typically used for calibrating or characterising various neutron-sensitive instruments (such as neutron spectrometers, detectors, monitors, personal dosimeters).

In this ocasion, parters from CIEMAT (Centre for Energy, Environmental and Technological Research (Centro de investigaciones energeticas, medioambientales y tecnologicas), Spain), CMI (Czech Metrology Institute (Český metrologický institut), Czech Republic), SMU (Slovak Institute of Metrology (Slovenský Metrologický Ústav), Slovakia) and UHEI (Heidelberg University (Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg), Germany) joined the experimental campaign. This oportunitty allowed the interchange of points of view, the mutual learning, and a reinforcement in the collaboration between different reasearch teams.
