Abstract

Present contribution is based on the talk given at the VI International Symposium on Radiation Physics in Zacatecas (México). It summarizes recent developments on nanoparticle reflectors for very cold neutrons (VCN). Particular attention is devoted to powders of detonation nano–diamonds, possessing exceptional properties for such reflectors. Examples of VCN applications in particle and nuclear physics are given.

Keywords: Nanoparticle powders; very cold neutrons; neutron albedo.

 

Resumen

Este trabajo esta basado en la conferencia ofrecida en el VI Simposio Internacional de Física de Radiaciones en Zacatecas (México). Resume los avances recientes en reflectores de nano–partículas para neutrones muy fríos (VCN). En particular en lo relativo al uso de polvos de nano–diamantes, que poseen propiedades excepcionales como reflectores. Se ofrecen ejemplos de aplicaciones de VCN en Física Nuclear y de Partículas.

Descriptores: Polvos de nanopartículas; neutrones muy fríos; albedo de neutrones.
