88-Inch Cyclotron: The One-Stop Facility for Electronics Radiation Testing

Published Web Location
No data is associated with this publication.

In the outer space down to the altitudes routinely flown by the larger commercial aircrafts, radiation is a serious problem for the microelectronics circuits. The 88-Inch Cyclotron at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is a sector-focused cyclotron and is the home of the Berkeley Accelerator Space Effects Facility, where the effects of energetic particles on sensitive microelectronics are studied with the goal of designing electronic systems for the space community. The paper will describe the flexibility of the facility and its capabilities for testing the bombardment of the electronics by heavy ions, light ions, and neutrons.
