Performing The First Single Event Effect Tests using The METU Defocusing Beamline Project

2018-12-27
METU-Defocusing Beam Line (METU-DBL) project aims to perform Single Event Effect (SEE) tests for space, nuclear and other applications. Turkish Atomic Energy Authority (TAEA) has a cyclotron which can accelerate protons up to 30 MeV kinetic energy at the Proton Accelerator Facility (PAF) mainly for radioisotope production and for research and development (R&D) purposes. In the facility, the stable proton beam current is variable between 0.1 µA to 1.2 mA and the beam size is nearly 1 cm x 1 cm. METU-DBL pre-test setup, which has been installed in the R&D room, enlarges the beam size with two quadrupole magnets and it reduces the proton flux with a collimator. The pretest setup beam size is about 10 cm x 10 cm and the beam flux is 108 p/cm2/s. The first tests of electronic cards, detectors and also commercial and experimental solar cells have been performed using this setup. Also, the final configuration of METU-DBL is now under construction to provide a beam according to ESA ESCC No. 25100 standard. MCNP Monte Carlo codes were used for the calculations of secondary particles (neutrons, gammas) and residuals.

An Adaptive Hybrid Beamforming Scheme for Time-Varying Wideband Massive MIMO Channels
Kurt, Anıl; Güvensen, Gökhan Muzaffer (2020-06-01)
© 2020 IEEE.In this paper, adaptive hybrid beamforming methods are proposed for millimeter-wave range massive MIMO systems considering single carrier wideband transmission in uplink data mode. A statistical analog beamformer is adaptively constructed in slow-time, while the channel is time-varying and erroneously estimated. Proposed recursive filtering approach is shown to bring a remarkable robustness against estimation errors. Then, analytical modifications are applied on an analog beamformer design metho...
A Low Complexity Two-Stage Target Detection Scheme for Resource Limited Radar Systems
Candan, Çağatay (2013-01-01)
A two-stage detector is proposed to accommodate high computational load requirements of modern radar systems. The first stage of the proposed system is a low-complexity detector that operates at an unusually high false alarm probability value around 1/10. This stage is to prescreen and eliminate some of the test cells with relatively few operations. The second stage operates only on the cells passing the prescreening stage and implements a high-complexity detector at a desired system false alarm rate. Due t...
The ATLAS Simulation Infrastructure
Aad, G.; et. al. (2010-12-01)
The simulation software for the ATLAS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider is being used for large-scale production of events on the LHC Computing Grid. This simulation requires many components, from the generators that simulate particle collisions, through packages simulating the response of the various detectors and triggers. All of these components come together under the ATLAS simulation infrastructure. In this paper, that infrastructure is discussed, including that supporting the detector descriptio...
A study of cosmic ray secondaries induced by the Mir space station using AMS-01
Aguilar, M; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2005-06-01)
The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02) is a high energy particle physics experiment that will study cosmic rays in the similar to 100 MeV to 1 TeV range and will be installed on the International Space Station (ISS) for at least 3 years. A first version of AMS-02, AMS-01, flew aboard the space shuttle Discovery from June 2 to June 12, 1998, and collected 108 cosmic ray triggers. Part of the Mir space station was within the AMS-01 field of view during the four day Mir docking phase of this flight. We have ...
