Ion Irradiation Facility-L at Jan Kochanowski University Kielce
The Ion Irradiation Facility-L installed at Jan Kochanowski University in Kielce, Poland, allows for performing experiments from x-ray spectroscopy up to irradiation of various targets with slow highly charged ions.
A Multi-Purpose Ion Irradiation Facility for Basic Research in Physics and Biology
Client: Uniwersytet Jana Kochanowskiego w Kielcach
Date of launch: Oct, 2010
Place: Kielce, Poland
This Ion Irradiation Facility-L consists of a Dresden EBIS-A, a beam guiding and diagnostic system, a double focusing analyzing magnet, and a multi-purpose target chamber. It allows for x-ray spectroscopy e.g. to study recombination processes in the EBIS-plasma as well as performing experiments with slow highly charged ions colliding with matter. The ion-matter interaction experiments can range from studies of the formation of nanostructures in ion-surface interactions or fragmentation of biomolecules by ion and electron impact up to investigations of radiobiological effects in living cells.
