Technical and scientific expertise

Exploitation of multi-charge ion beams, protons and neutrons for radiation resistance testing of electronic components used in space or at CERN (also via γ-sources) and the production of microporous membranes

Main equipment

  • Ion beams of the CYCLONE 110 cyclotron:
    • protons up to 65MeV
    • heavy ions up to Xe
    • neutrons
  • Cobalt 60 gamma irradiation
