Action full title: "Implementation of activities described in the
Roadmap to Fusion during Horizon 2020 through a Joint programme of the
members of the EUROfusion consortium"
The AIDA-2020 project brings together the leading European research infrastructures in the field of detector development and testing and a number of institutes, universities and technological centers, thus assembling the necessary expertise for the ambitious programme of work.
Horizon2020 project RADIATE - Research And Development with Ion Beams – Advancing Technology in Europe
Besides further developing ion beam technology and strengthening the cooperation between European ion beam infrastructures, RADIATE is committed to providing easy, flexible and efficient access for researchers from academia and industry to the participating ion beam facilities. About 15.800 hours of transnational access in total is going to be offered free of charge to users who successfully underwent the RADIATE proposal procedure.
The goal of the project is to find new knowledge based on experimental study of the time evolutions of radiation damages induced by energetic (MeV) ion beams. The focus is on studying:
- influence of electronic stopping and related nanostructuring of materials by ion track methodology using swift heavy ions;
- influence of nuclear stopping to radiation damage and amorphization in crystals, including materials of interest for future fusion reactors;
- charge transport properties in crystalline materials, focusing on novel semiconductor materials for radiation detection
