The CERN accelerator complex is officially in shutdown since end of November 2018. RADSAGA students came to CERN for testing their electronics with the very last protons and heavy ions available.
Radsaga News & Events
On November 14-25, PSI delivered some rare electrons and pions beam for radiation testing on electronics. Obviously, RADSAGA ESRs didn't miss out this opportunity and 3 of them moved to Villigen, Switzerland, with their DUTs.
From September 17th to September 21st, two mainstream conferences were held: RADECS in Gothenburg, Sweden and TWEPP in Antwerp, Belgium. Fortunately, RADSAGA has enough ESRs to attend both conferences despite time superpositions. 10 ESRs participated to RADECS and 2 of them could present their posters. RADSAGA also brought a vital contribution to the CERN booth in the Industrial Exhibition. 3 ESRs participated to TWEPP and held a RADSAGA booth there.
18 Months after the official kick-off of the RADSAGA project, the European Commission held a Mid-Term Review during the Saint Etienne Summer School on Tuesday September 11th. Beneficiaries, partners and, of course, students coming from all over Europe explained their role in this consortium, their aim of their research and the benefits of their outcomes on society.
The Saint-Etienne Summer School is the third training event of 2018 which will gather all the ESR students in the RADSAGA training network and will take place from September 10th to September 14th 2018 at the University Jean Monnet in Saint-Etienne, France. Summer school agenda is available here and in the table below.
The Jyväskylä Summer School will be the second training event of 2018 which will gather all the ESR students in the RADSAGA training network and will take place from August 6th to August 10th 2018 at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. General information on Summer School can be found here.
An entire irradiation week dedicated to RADSAGA was recently hosted at the CHARM (CERN Highly-AcceleRated Mixed field facility) at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland from July 18th to 25th. The test campaign featured the participation of 5 ESRs: Daniel Söderström (ESR2), Vanessa Wyrwoll (ESR4), Kimmo Niskanen (ESR7), Tomasz Rajkowski (ESR12) and Andrea Coronetti (ESR15).
The very first RADSAGA test campaign was held at GANIL (Grand Accelerateur National des Ions Lourdes), in Caen, France from July 4th to 6th. The test campaign featured the participation of 4 ESRs: Vanessa Wyrwoll (ESR4), Kimmo Niskanen (ESR7), Tomasz Rajkowski (ESR12) and Andrea Coronetti (ESR15) with the extraordinary guest appearance of RADSAGA manager Rubén Garcìa Alìa.
