IPNO at RADECS2018 conference: a way of promoting ALTO facility

In order to open the ALTO platform to external services, our laboratory participated in the most important conference on RADiation Effects on Components and Systems (RADECS). The conference was held from 16 to 21 September in Gothenburg, where more than 500 participants, including major players in aeronautics and space, were gathered. Our ALTO colleagues held an exhibition booth to present service offerings (radiation tests, advices and training) to industry and research organizations.

Indeed, the beams produced by our accelerators (protons, neutrons, electrons, etc.) are of major interest for the space industry. They are essential to test the hardness and the reliability of the components that will be subjected to the ionizing radiations during missions in hostile environments.

The objective of our participation in such an event is to promote our facilities, our expertise and our know-how which are little known in this industrial sector. We could thus stimulate exchanges leading to future collaborations and partnerships between research laboratory and industry.
