    Low Energy ion beams in basic research and applications

    Low energy ion beams represent a powerful tool to investigate nuclear physics in an energy scale approaching atomic and even solid state physics, thus opening a window on a broad field including astrophysics, environmental physics, diagnostics on cultural heritage and material science.
    It is the aim of this workshop to bring together scientists from different areas sharing methodologies based on low energy ion beams to exploit possible crossovers.
    The workshop will give the opportunity to celebrate the first 45 years of the career of Filippo Terrasi, an outstanding colleague in this field.


    The workshop will be hosted at the CRS-SNA, Corso Trieste, 2, Caserta, Italy, where participants can get an accommodation in single or double rooms, as indicated in the registration form. 

    How to reach the workshop site


    The CRS-SNA is 200 m away from the railway station in Caserta, with connections available from Naples (35 m.) and Rome (1:15 by high speed trains) 

    CarCRS-SNA can be reached by car exiting the Autostrada A1 Naples-Rome at Caserta Nord and then following directions to the Reggia di Caserta.

    Participants staying over night at the CRS-SNA can park their car in the CRS SNA parking place Otherwise participants are advised to Park at the Parking Reggia Centro, Viale VittorioVeneto, 9


    The closest airport is the Naples International Airport Capodichino.
    A shuttle bus service will be available upon request during the registration.


    Registration can be done here
