Ion Beam Techniques (IBTs) encompass a suite of analytical and modification techniques in which energetic (0.1 to 100 MeV) beams of charged particles (Z=1, 2 and higher) are directed onto a material to be analysed or modified. In analysis, the composition and in some cases structure of the material are inferred from the nature of detected induced radiation: the type of particle, and its probability distributions, as a function of incident beam energy and direction, and detected particle energy and angle. IBTs have been used for over 50 years now, and much of the underlying physics, data, and machinery are considered to be mature.
Individual accelerators often find application across a broad range of disciplines and domains. The underlying technology associated with megavolt accelerators is thus common across many fields of application, so that developments and evolution driven by one particular application will feed through to other areas.
The aim of this Panel to discuss where further concerted research efforts are likely to lead to improved performance or new competitive IBTs, in view of the development of an Ion Beam Techniques Roadmap. The primary Goals of the Roadmap are:
The conference participants will have an opportunity to provide their feedback on the technological developments during the conference, and also in the form of a questionnaire.
