The ASIF program aims at establishing a coordinated and interactive set of radiation systems throughout the country, primarily (but not only) at the service of the national and international space community.
ASIF agreements 2017-22-HD.0 ASI-ENEA and 2017-15-HD.0 ASI-INFN with ENEA and INFN were established based on the consolidated concept that the development of future generation of EEE components is or is expected to be a key strategic area of interest for future Investments. Asif, asif gateway and sr-niel websites are supported within ASIF implementation agreements.
The ASIF gateway is the main tool to allow (registered) users to access the ASI supported irradiation facilities for radiation damage investigations within ASIF framework.
ASIF facilities are planned to gradually become available to industrial, institutional and research registered user by means of the asif gateway website.
Once registered, users will access the relevant pieces of information on:
- How to book irradiation time
- User access to the facility
- Safety instructions
- Irradiation parameters
- Technical information
- Request for technical support
- Travel information
For each ASIF facility, documents and webpages will deal with particle species and beam parameters, energies or spectral distribution available, flux information, dosimetry information (dose, dose rate) or flux information, energy measurement accuracy information, flux measurement accuracy, radiation field uniformity at sample, beam purity, beam set-up and calibration and, finally, detailed description of the procedures required to book facility irradiation time (standard facility access procedure, etc.)
