Welcome to the CERN radiation-test facility
IRRAD-3, 5, 7 & 9
IRRAD-3 & IRRAD-5 just like 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.
Samples of larger dimensions can be irradiated here, but a short access to a controlled area can be done only during MD (Machine Development) or Irrad-Access.
The operation of this facility ended in 2012 (from 2014 see here)
