RADNEXT: RADiation facility Network for the EXploration of effects for indusTry and research
New applications in aerospace, automotive, Internet-of-Things, nuclear dismantling and medicine, among others, require innovative, streamlined and coordinated radiation testing methodologies for state-of-the-art microelectronics. While some exceptions exist, Europe does not count with a coordinated network of cost-effective testing facilities to support innovators, who find it difficult to access facilities and related expertise. The RADNEXT project aims to optimise the access of component engineers, system developers and radiation effects scientists to irradiation facilities, where representative conditions of their final application are reproduced, and that can deliver satisfactory validation for the end-users. This access will be based on a network of facilities, suitable for a very broad range of environments and applications, and with a common entry-point, where users can define, prepare, execute and analyse their irradiation campaigns.
