Since 2011 and within the EU FP7 project SPIRIT, RBI accelerator facility became also a Trans National Access (TNA) provider. Within the TNA scheme, scientists from EU and associated states can apply for the beam time at any of the beam lines dedicated to ion beam analysis and materials modification.
Currently, access to the facility’s equipment is provided to the foreign researchers in the framework of several projects:
- EURO-LABS project for testing radiation detectors by ion microbeams;
- ReMade@ARI project for giving access to the most developed ion beam techniques for materials analysis and modification for research in the field of Circular Economy.
- RBI-AF is a member of a regional research infrastructure network CERIC-ERIC.
All TNA opportunities are listed in the table below with links to the associated webpages. We provide about 3000 hours of beam time per year. The international collaboration increased its share in the total beam time from 14% in 2007 to almost 40% in 2017.
