ECAC Schedule of Activities 2021

WCCAP: 2021 workshops are now in the frame of ATMOS-ACCESS.

Information:
Currently we are reconstructing our lab building and have to move to a temporary lab. Due to this reconstruction and the actual situation of COVID-19, we are not able to operate the WCCAP in the moment. We plan to re-open middle of March again. The status will be updated as soon there are news.

CCC: Invitation: Calibration-intercomparison workshop at ACTRIS Cluster Calibration Center

Place: Kumpula Campus, Helsinki, Finland
Time: September 20th – October 1st, 2021 (tentative, depening on COVID19-situation)

Information:
To apply proceed to the  "APPLICATION PROCEDURE" page and download the "APPLICATION FORM" and submit over the form.

EMC2: Opportunity to access EMC2 services through RADIATE Transnational Access (TA)

LABEC, the INFN accelerator laboratory hosting the EMC2 unit, is participating in a European research infrastructure of ion beam facilities, RADIATE (https://www.ionbeamcenters.eu/), that currently offers transnational access (TA) to the external-beam PIXE-PIGE facility for atmospheric aerosol sample analysis to external users.
 
Member of ACTRIS can benefit of this opportunity for high-sensitivity and high-throughput elemental analysis of atmospheric aerosols collected on daily, hourly and size-segregated (e.g. impactor) samples, using Ion Beam Analysis techniques, typically PIXE and PIGE with 3 MeV proton beams and exploiting a dedicated detection set-up made by an array of Silicon Drift Detectors for X-ray spectroscopy. Given the pandemic situation hands-off experiments are welcomed: the user sends the aerosol samples, we will analyse them and then we will send them back.
 
The users have to submit a proposal to RADIATE’s proposal submission system, RADIATE GATE (https:// gate.hzdr.de/user/). Check this presentation as a guideline.
 
Access is granted free of charge to positively evaluated proposals. Download the proposal template to prepare your proposal.
 
Information on how to submit a measurement proposal to RADIATE TA can be found at the following website:
 
After the beam time at LABEC , once the measurements are finished, you will have to submit an experimental report in RADIATE GATE.

It is suggested that you contact Massimo Chiari (chiari@fi.infn.it) before submitting a proposal for advice on the beam analysis method and requested hours that are most appropriate, and for support in proposal submission.
