In this talk I'll be presenting the current capabilities and ongoing developments for materials radiation damage and materials analysis at the Dalton Cumbrian Facility.
DCF houses two high-current Pelletron ion accelerators for materials damage, radiation chemistry and ion-beam analysis, being a 5 MV tandem with two ion sources
(hydrogen/helium and heavy ions) and a single-ended 2.5 MV accelerator for hydrogen, helium, krypton and xenon beams. Detailed description of the end stations
capabilities will be given in this presentation. DCF also houses a Co-60 gamma irradiator widely used for investigating the effects of ionising radiation on a wide
range of materials, such as polymers, glasses, graphite. Guidelines for materials irradiation at DCF will also be discussed, including an overview of the procedures
for determining the experimental parameters for a successful irradiation.
I did my PhD in experimental physics at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, focused on the fundamentals of ion-solid interactions. Afterwards,
I spent a three-year period as a Post-doctoral research associate at the Institute for Advanced Materials, Devices, and Nanotechnology of the Rutgers University,
New Jersey, USA, with research focused on materials characterization by ion beams. I currently hold the position of Ion Accelerator Experimental Officer at the
Dalton Cumbrian Facility, being responsible for the development of materials radiation capabilities, experimental support for materials irradiation and
characterization by ion beam analysis.
