About Us

POSIPOL 2014 will be held at the new library of Ichinoseki-city, Iwate.
As the ninth of the POSIPOL workshop series, POSIPOL 2014 will discuss issues of polarized positron sources, high intensity positron sources, X-ray/Gamma-ray sources, and their applications. The positron sources for the proposed future linear colliders, ILC and CLIC, will be main subjects, but positron sources for other colliders such as B-factories will also be discussed.


  Conference topics:
  -Generation of polarized positron beams
  -High intensity positron sources
  -Positron generation target issues
  -Physics applications of polarized positrons
  -Polarized gamma-ray and X-ray generation
  -Channelling radiation and applications
  -Physics applications of high quality X-rays and gamma-rays


POSIPOL Workshop Series

The POSIPOL is a series of workshops dealing with the physics aspects, the design issues,
and the open questions concerning a polarized positron source in the framework of the ILC and CLIC projects.
