Complex Irradiation Testing

Complex Irradiation Facility (CIF / VUV)

The Complex Irradiation Facility is capable to simulate different UV sources, as well as proton and electron radiation under vacuum.

Recipient:

• Volume: 0.035 m³ (400 mm diameter)

• Pressure: <10^-8 mbar without VUV-simulator and <10^-6 mbar with VUV-simulator

• Irradiated diameter: 80 mm

Light sources:

• Sun simulator: 200 – 2150 nm (4.5kW/m²)

• Deuterium VUV source 112 – 400 nm (1.65 W/m²)

• Argon VUV source 40 – 410 nm (58 mW/m²)
