Travel to CSNS at Dongguan
(Optional tour)

A brand-new pulsed neutron source, China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS), has been constructed in Dongguan, about 70 km north of Hong Kong. The commission of CSNS on August 28, 2017, has created an international sensation. With CSNS, China joins US, UK, and Japan as the only nations which provide pulsed neutron sources for research and development.

The facility is already scientifically productive, having produced many high-impact publications in prestigious scientific journals.

Moreover, CSNS was recently approved for Phase-2 development, which includes a power upgrade (from 100 to 500 kW) and the construction of 10 more instruments. The Phase-2 program has been approved as part of the central government’s 14th Five-year plan (2021-2025). The planned tour is a great opportunity to see first-hand the impressive facility and learn about its capabilities.
