The 3rd International Forum on Advances in Radiation Physics (IFARP-3) has concluded successfully in Sunway University, Selangor. The event was conducted online via Zoom on the 24th and 25th February 2021. IFARP-3 was hosted by Sunway University and the University of Melbourne, with Universiti Putra Malaysia as a collaborating body. IFARP-3 is a focused event of the Centre for Applied Physics and Radiation Technologies (CAPRT), School of Engineering and Technology at Sunway University and the Department of Physics University of Melbourne. At the event, we also celebrate the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) recently signed between the two Universities, promoting our working together in areas of mutual interest.
Invited Speaker 1 (D2): Professor Sultan Dabagov
Title of presentation: X-ray spectroscopy and microscopy studies at XLabFrascati
Invited Speaker 1 (D1): Professor Christopher T. Chantler
Title of presentation: Accuracy and insight possible with advanced methods in absorption and fluorescence XAS
Presenter 12 (D1): Mardhiyati Mohd Yunus
Title of presentation: Evaluation of optimum breast compression, adequate image quality and acceptable radiation dose in digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) using breast phantom
IFARP-3 follows on from the Buenos Aires FORUMBA on 4-5 May 2017 and the Kuala Lumpur IFARP-2 on 3-4 December 2019 (with an early 2021 Special Issue of the journal Radiation Physics and Chemistry (RPC) dedicated to the event). These focused meetings of the International Radiation Physics Society (IRPS) are intended to provide timely updates covering the very latest developments and emerging ideas within the underpinning science and radiation technologies.
Presenter 32 (D1): Dr Mengge Dong
Title of presentation: Studies of physical behaviors of some boron containing resources and nuclear radiation rays
Presenter 24 (D2): Dr Ines Krajcar Bronić
Title of presentation: Solar activity cycles recorded in long-term data on tritium activity concentration in precipitation at Zagreb, Croatia
Part of the participants from 20 countries
IFARP-3 focuses on the future while also recognizing the considerable advances made in radiation sciences over the several decades since IRPS made it its purpose to promote the interdisciplinary subject of radiation physics including the fundamentals, application, and implications. We are overwhelmed by the response we had at this particular meeting, attracting participants from more than 20 countries.
