Event Name

14th International Conference on Particle Induced X-ray Emission (PIXE 2015) and Workshop on PIXE software

Start Date 26th Feb 2015
End Date 3rd Mar 2015

The conference is organised by the iThemba Laboratory for Accelerator-Based Sciences, a group of multi-disciplinary research laboratories administered by the National Research Foundation (NRF) and the Department of Sciences and Technology (DST) of the Republic of South Africa

The PIXE conference is a biennial event with a long tradition of being the international forum to discuss recent developments and future prospects in particle induced X-ray spectrometry. The conference brings together physicists and scientists from different fields of application including biology and medicine, environmental and earth sciences, cultural heritage and materials research.
