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. Don't miss out!

Investing 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.

The RADMEP Erasmus Mundus Master has been accepted for funding!

The 2-year (120 ECTS) Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (https://eacea.ec.europa.eu/erasmus-plus/emjmd-catalogue_en ) RADMEP has been accepted for funding by the European Commission in July 2020.

Summertime Reads

A whole set of brand new journal publications from RADSAGA students is now available. Most of the publications are available in open access. You can find a full list of them in the Publication section. Click on this news banner for direct access.

The RADNEXT proposal has been submitted!

In the scope of RADSAGA, the need of ensuring a high quantity and quality of irradiation beam time at European facilities was clearly highlighted, amongst others during the RADSAGA system level review held in November 2019. As a consequence, the RADNEXT proposal was born, integrating a rich, transversal and complementary collection of European infrastructures capable of providing a broad range of irradiation beams and services.

RADSAGA back at ChipIr with brand new experiments

On March 12-16, 2020, one year after the first test campaign, the RADSAGA ESRs went back to the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) in Didcot, UK. The RADSAGA students on site were Daniel Söderström (ESR 02), Kimmo Niskanen (ESR 07) and Mohamed Mounir Mahmoud (ESR 08).

'Turn your research into a business' Workshop at KU Leuven

Last week, our ESRs have attended a specializing training at KU Leuven. During the first 3 days, the ESRs have experienced a dense and hands-on training program focused on how to transform the knowledge and technology developed during the PhD studies into a profitable company.
