Special Issue "Asia-Oceania Neutron and Advanced Photon Source for Industrial Applications"
A special issue of Quantum Beam Science (ISSN 2412-382X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2020.
The applications for neutron and advanced photon source for our society are evidenced by the many successful industrial liaison programs of neutron and synchrotron facilities. The neutron/synchrotron X-ray measurements, coupled with complimentary experiments, offer important benchmark events for modeling and simulation work in order to characterize specific patterns. For example for safety examinations, such as railroad transportation and pipes, where the penetration of the advanced photon source offers nondestructive examinations to detect the defects and to protect human life in advance.
The Asia–Oceania Conference for Neutron Scattering (AOCNS) will address these aspects in the context of the needs and developments, focusing on important factors that contribute to processing, microstructure, properties, performance, and prediction. Prospective topics include (and are not limited to) fundamental developments and design considerations related to the following: (1) additive manufacturing for metals, (2) public safety case studies, (3) high entropy alloys, (4) lightweight alloys, (5) steels, (6) energy, and (7) other applications.
This Special Issue of Quantum Beam Science is for experts and users getting together and/or stimulated by these topics to share new ideas and the latest achievements. We welcome both experienced and new users to share their original research and case studies. The Special Issue offers readers a platform to catch up on the applications of neutron and advanced photon source for industry and public safety.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Quantum Beam Science is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
