Prof. WANG Sheng


The spallation neutron source is a large scientific infrastructure that provides advanced research tools for studying material science, mainly through neutron scattering. The China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS) is the first in China and the fourth in the world, and it was completed and opened for user operation in 2018. It is located in Dongguan, Guangdong Province. I will introduce the construction, commissioning, and operation of CSNS. After the opening of the spallation neutron source, 8 cooperative neutron spectrometers were successively built, and I will also describe the construction and opening of these 8 cooperative neutron spectrometers. The second phase of the CSNS project (CSNS-II) is included in China's 14th Five-Year Plan and will officially start construction next month. I will introduce the construction content, construction plan, and future operation plan of CSNS-II. This talk will also provide detailed information on the research areas that can be carried out at CSNS and the future CSNS-II. Utilization of this national facility by Hong Kong researchers is most welcome.

Keynote Speaker

Prof. WANG Sheng


China Spallation Neutron Source

Prof. WANG Sheng is a senior researcher in accelerator physics and is now the deputy director of the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), CAS and the director of China Spallation Neutron Source. Prof. Wang received his bachelor's degree from the Beijing Institute of Technology in 1990 and his doctorate degree in accelerator physics and technology from the China Institute of Atomic Energy in 1996. He participated in the pre-research of J-PARC, Japan's proton accelerator project. He returned to China in 2002 to join the China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS) research project. As the helmsman of the CSNS accelerator system, he led the team with huge success in developing novel technology and expanding the boundaries of scientific knowledge, making outstanding contributions to the construction and operation of the CSNS project.
