The Universität der Bundeswehr München (UBW), founded in 1973, is a state accredited institution of higher education and research with ?3700 students (mostly officer and officer cadets) in Engineering, Science, Economics and Social Sciences. UBW is dedicated to the highest standards of multi-disciplinary research exploring issues relevant to technology and society.
The Institute for Applied Physics and Measurement Technology has developed a series of new microscopy methods using high energy ions and low energy positron beams that are applied in materials science, electrical engineering and health sciences. UBW runs the positron microscopes at the research reactor FRM II and the ion microscopes at the Munich 14 MV tandem accelerator. Please note that as of mid-January 2020, UBW’s accelerator lab is closed. Read more. UBW cooperates with a large number of national and international research institutes in order to perform research and engineering in the mentioned fields. It also opens the access to the ion beam facilities to industrial use.
UBW’s main areas of competence:
- special expertise in the fields of Health, Energy and Advanced Materials including live cell irradiation studies, high resolution elastic recoil detection, 3D high-resolution analysis of hydrogen and high energy Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS).
Role in RADIATE:
- deliver 1100 hours of transnational access to users
- contribute to joint research activities:
work package leader: “Software and Data Handling,” task leader “Common Standards for Data,” and contributing to task “CaH3-Beam”
