Areas of Activity
The key issues for the SpaceRad Group activities are the following:
Space Radiation Environment Modelling
Radiation transport and interaction simulation of particles/radiation through matter with the Geant4 simulation toolkit, based on physical data from planetary and interplanetary missions and state of the art planetary models.
Radiation Monitors for Space Missions
Design and Optimisation of radiation monitors for future missions, in particular in type 3 and 4 instruments, providing housekeeping and scientific data.
Radiation effects in EEE components
Modeling radiation effects in EEE components.
Radiation testing and Data Analysis
Calibration of RADFETs and analysis of calibration data EEE component TID testing and verification.
