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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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).
