5 Student Grants from RADSAGA to participate to RADECS 2021

The RADSAGA Innovative Training Network will be awarding 5 Student Grants that will cover the RADECS 2021 registration fees. The Grants will be awarded based on the quality and originality of the extended abstracts as evaluated by the technical committee. The awarding of the RADSAGA Grants will be communicated together with the extended abstract decision letters, early June 2021.

Announcing the RADSAGA final conference and industrial event

After four years of bright achievements in the domain of radiation effects to electronics, 2021 will mark the end of the RADSAGA project. The final conference and industrial event will be held at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland on May 17-19, 2021.

Full program is available on the Indico page. Registrations are now open!

Ygor Aguiar won the 2020 IEEE/NPSS Paul Phelps Award

During the Nuclear and Space Radiation Effects Conference (NSREC) at Santa Fé, US, our fellow Ygor Aguiar (ESR9) received the 2020 Paul Phelps Award from the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society (NPSS). Although the conference was virtual this year, he acknowledges the importance of receiving this award for the recognition of the work he has developed in the past years.

First RADSAGA ESRs defended their PhD

At the end of 2020, four RADSAGA ESRs defended their PhDs at the University of Montpellier, France. They are Kimmo Niskanen (ESR7), Ygor Aguiar (ESR9), Tomasz Rajkowksi (ESR12) and Israel da Costa Lopes (ESR13). Congratulations for this great achievement! Read more about their stories.

Investigating the coupled impact of radiation effects and aging degradation mechanisms at RADEF

Within the framework of RADSAGA, Mohamed Mounir Mahmoud (ESR08) continues to study the coupledimpact of radiation effects and aging degradation mechanisms in advanced technology nodes. At the RADiation Effects Facility (RADEF) in Jyväskylä, he had a successful testing campaign on September 24th and 25th, 2020.

Eleven RADSAGA-featured presentations at RADECS and NSREC 2020

Throughout the challenging 2020 year, RADSAGA ESRs have not stopped making progress in radiation effects on electronics research. The two topical conferences, RADECS and NSREC (which will be held in virtual mode this year) feature 11 presentations from them. Find them out.

Official public release of RADSAGA System-Level Radiation Testing Guideline

A big milestone in the RADSAGA project has been achieved with the public release of the RADSAGA System-Level Radiation Testing Guideline. The document contains recommendations about when and how to use system-level radiation testing as verification scheme for space systems and sub-systems.

Remote calibration of Silicon diodes at RADEF

Despite the hard times we live in, RADSAGA did not stop its radiation testing activity and exploited the possibility of performing remote testing. This was achieved at RADEF, at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, thanks to the on-site cooperation from the two RADSAGA ESRs: Sascha Lüdeke (ESR1) and Daniel Söderström (ESR2) as well as the kind facility operators.
