Neutron Applications Workshop

Thailand Institute of Nuclear Technology (Public Organization) (TINT) in cooperation with ASEAN Large Nuclear and Synchrotron Facility Network (LNSN) is organizing an ASEAN training workshop on neutron applications in order to promote research collaboration utilizing nuclear research reactors among the ASEAN members.  The Workshop is funded by ASEAN Science, Technology and Innovation Fund (ASTIF) and TINT.

The two-day workshop was held at Reactor Center, TINT, in Bangkok, Thailand.  During the workshop, participants will learn about research applications utilizing TRR-1/M1 research reactor with some hands-on experiences.  The topics cover neutron irradiation, imaging, activation analysis and applications in various field.



  • To promote understanding and utilization of large nuclear facilities among ASEAN members
  • To provide meeting venue and opportunities to initiate research collaboration among ASEAN participants
