Munich Tandem Accelerator Closed Down: changes to RADIATE

The RADIATE consortium had to make amendments regarding the transnational access program as well as the training programs. RADIATE project Partner Universität der Bundeswehr München (UBW) is unable to offer any transnational access since mid-January 2020:

Due to safety issues of the accelerator building, the laboratory of the 14 MV tandem accelerator situated in Garching/Munich has closed down from 16th January 2020. Negotiations have started whether and how the accelerator lab could be reopened. However, no trans-national access to the Munich tandem accelerator and its instruments can be provided by UBW at the moment. Thus, high resolution ERD, accelerator mass spectrometry of medium heavy ions, and the ion microprobe SNAKE for hydrogen microscopy or cell irradiation are not available within RADIATE from now. The ion beam community will be informed if situation changes.

Universität der Bundeswehr München will, of course, remain a part of the RADIATE project and concentrate their efforts on RADIATE’s joint research activities. In the fall, UBW is organizing a data management workshop in conjunction with the 17th International Conference on Nuclear Microbeam Technology and Applications (ICNMTA2020).
