Session 3 - Harsh Environments and specific needs
- Caroline Boudou (Institut Laue-Langevin)
This session focusses on the specific needs of companies working with harsh environments (nuclear facilities, particle accelerators etc.)
The main scope of this presentation is the test of SEEs induced by neutrons on electronics intended to be operated in a neutron flux in a fusion reactor (DT plasma neutrons).
Regardless of the intensity of the gamma and neutron fluxes, this presentation focuses on the energy spectra of neutrons, whose energy degradation can vary from one place to another in the reactor building depending on...
The estimated radiation field in the central particle detectors at the CERN High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider will extend to ultra-high TID levels (1Grad). The radiation hardness specifications for the ASICs developed to read-out signals from these detectors will be presented, together with the technology and design choices enabling to meet them. Qualification procedures as well as...
The CERN accelerator complex and notably the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) host vast quantities of electronic components and systems exposed to radiation, which therefore need to be tolerant enough against radiation effects in order not to negatively impact the performance of the accelerator. This presentation will cover the related challenges and solutions in terms of radiation environment,...
This contribution aims at presenting the challenges and requirements associated with radiation testing of measuring technology used in the field of medical radiology. The focus lies on radiation testing workflows of devices used for medical LINAC QA, one major market of PTW Dosimetry. Needs related to testing facilities as well as test standardization approaches will be discussed.
