At the kick-off meeting an External Advisory Board is appointed, which will regularly assess the project progress
The User Selection Panel will meet for a kick-off meeting to review and agree upon the evaluation procedure and rules. The documentation will be made available to the public.
As the project progresses a unified approach to each particular service and a comprehensive quality assurance and monitoring procedure is developed and published as a manual. This will be a “living document” and will be adapted as new services come on stream from the JRA activities and as the inter-comparisons between groups highlight best practice.
In the low energy ion range (<20 keV), where the high spatial resolution (<20 nm), can be obtained using Focused Ion Beam tech-nology, efficiency of single ion detection will be improved and tested using new secondary ion detection systems (SUR, IONOPTIKA) and using highly charged ions (HZDR), becoming available for TA.
At the kick-off meeting a User Selection Panel is installed
In order to boost knowledge on the potential of ion beams four annual Summer Schools will be organized.
The first issue of the RADIATE Report Series is published on the Ion Beam Portal. The RADIATE Report Series is open access consisting of quality-controlled reports of great practical value but not suited for publication in international journals, such as equipment progress reports, laboratory or instrument descriptions, feasibility studies, or practical notes, is set up.
TRI3DYN has been developed as a 3D extension of TRIDYN, and will be further developed to obtain robust, generally applicable codes that can be used by non-experts. Together with the codes, common input and output data structures, user manuals and tutorials will be developed and made available via the Ion Beam Web Portal
Dissemination includes education and outreach to the general public. To tackle this challenge a series of short Ion Beam Video Clips explaining the benefits of ion beam technology to a general audience will be produced and made available.
The initially set up proposal submission and evaluation website will be amended and upgraded.
Initial version of common proposal submission, evaluation and handling system is made available to users on the Ion Beam Web Portal
On the long term the interaction between industry and the ion beam facilities will be solidified by personal involvement. Alumni from the ion beam facilities will be employed at different companies and will spread the knowledge of ion beam technology. RADIATE will keep track of them in a dedicated Alumni Network in order to enhance the two-way knowledge transfer between company and ion beam facilities.
Ion beam simulation software for ion beam transport and tuning, ion irradiation as well as for data analysis is made available to users online
The publication outcome from TA users and JRA activities will be regularly monitored by the NA Leader, and publication statistics will be made available on the Web Portal
Since ion beam optics is a crucial, common component of these developments, an Ion Optics Pool of expertise will be established within RADIATE and centralize and further develop the expertise on ion optics hardware and on state-of-the-art software for ion optics simulations (COMSOL, WinTRAX and SIMION), as well as on related fields of relevance (electronics, vacuum, molecular gas dynamics, mechanical design, etc.). The findings will be made available on the Ion Beam Web Portal.
Guest Researcher and Twinning Program is going to be established and announced on the Ion Beam Web Portal. The promotion of ion beam technology and ion beam use to the next generation of scientist is a central goal of RADIATE. In particular scientists from countries without national ion beam facilities are addressed by the dedicated activities. Likewise, a Twinning Program is set up to enable unexperienced potential users to participate in an experimental campaign of an established user group.
