    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)
