The Ps Spectroscopy team had the delight of attending the 15th International Workshop on Slow Positron Beam Techniques and Applications (SLOPOS-15) in Prague on 2-6 September, 2019. The workshop was held in the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University in the centre of the Lesser Town square.
A wide range of topics, from Ps physics to defect studies, were discussed by over 100 participants in the workshop. David outlined the recent experimental progress in Ps-laser physics in his talk, while Ross talked about the versatility of a multi-ring guide for possible Ps deceleration and trapping studies. Lokesh presented the results of the new precision microwave spectroscopy experiment (stay tuned for more details). The complete list of abstracts can be found here. It was a pleasure discussing the ongoing work in the field of slow positron physics in the wonderful city of Prague.
We’d like to thank the local organising committee, led by Jakub Cizek, for organising an excellent meeting and we look forward to the next SLOPOS which will be held in Orléans, France in 2022.
