This work package aims at adapting the existing CHARM beam line infrastructure at CERN to accommodate very high energy (VHE) heavy ion beams for radiation effects testing on electronics. This requires the capacity of accurately tuning the beam energy and intensity in a large dynamic range and to ensure the parallelization of activities at CERN around the PS East Area. Furthermore, this WP will also tackle the definition of an adequate administrative and technical framework for external users to first validate and later regularly exploit the VHE beam for electronics testing and qualification.
- Task 7.1: Methodology for extracting variable energy ion beams to ensure parallel operation of the VHE ion facility (CERN, month 1-12)
- Task 7.2: Achievement of the required beam parameters for microelectronics SEE testing (CERN, month 12-24)
- Task 7.3: Framework for user access (CERN, month 24-48)
