Irradiation Facilities with High-energy Protons / Neutrons / Gammas

Success Story

Application Domains

The following CERN irradiation facilities will be part of CERN-ESA protocol on radiation testing: IRRAD (24 GeV/c proton beam), CERF (reference neutron field), n_TOF (pulsed neutron source with high instantaneous flux and wide energy spectrum), and CALLAB (gamma/x-ray for TID studies). NASA and ESA also make use of Advacam’s tools for particle tracking and high-resolution dosimetry and detection of space radiation. The miniaturised MiniPIX-TimePIX camera can study mixed-radiation fields consisting namely of X-rays and charged particles. The camera broadly characterises for particle type, energy loss and direction.
