Acceleratorbaserat Jonteknologiskt Centrum

Tidsperiod: 2021-01-01 till 2024-12-31

Projektledare: Daniel Primetzhofer, Uppsala universitet

Finansiär: Vetenskapsrådet

Bidragstyp: Forskningsinfrastruktur

Budget: 16 000 000 SEK

The present project will meet the broad Swedish national scientific, industrial and societal demands for high-quality material analysis by sustaining and advancing the role of the Tandem Laboratory at Uppsala University (UU) as a national infrastructure for Accelerator-Based Ion Technology which is presently employed by more than 200 annual users.The partners in the present consortium are UU, The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Linköping University (LiU).The project shall guarantee a sustainable operation and development in line with the evolving scientific demands of the user community for the four accelerator systems: the 5 MV tandem accelerator, the 350 kV ion implantation facility, the Low-energy systems and the MICADAS compact mass spectrometer and the associated clean room and sample preparation infrastructure at the laboratory to be used for world-leading research in Ion beam Analysis (IBA), Ion Beam Modification of Materials (IBMM) and Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS).Within AMS, apart from world-leading research in archeology, biomedicine or earth sciences also the Swedish society and many authorities will receive decisive support by the continual activities at the laboratory.In IBA, collaborative research will be conducted, with access also for industrial partners. The expected activities range from materials science on e.g. electronics, optics, hard coatings, or energy materials over inorganic and organic chemistry to life sciences and fusion plasma physicsIn IBMM, advanced materials with tailored properties will be produced upon request from numerous research groups within electronics, fusion research as well as industrial partners. The consortium partners in particular, but also the user community, national and international, will play a decisive role in order to match the planned development of instrumentation during the project period with the ever increasing demands of the scientific community for more advanced material characterization.
