   IRRAD-1: is an irradiation zone at the CERN PS East hall, 

                     where samples can be exposed to a 24 GeV/c proton beam (area ~ 2 x 2 cm2

                     and reach fluencies of 1 - 3 x 1013 p/cm2 per hour.

  

   Minimum fluence:  ~5E10 p/cm2/spill or ~ 1.5E11p/spill.  

 

The operation of this facility ended in 2012 (from 2014 see here)

   TIMING:   CPS==> 14 or 18 cycles of 1.2 s. 

                      1 EASTA or 1 EASTC  = 2 cycles (2.4s.) 

                      1 slow extraction = 400-500 ms

                       Minimum delay between two consecutives extraction = 2 s.
