Abstract
This article describes the essential features of the SIRAD facility of the INFN Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro. This facility, located at the 15 MV T andem accelerator, is dedicated to radiation damage studies (bulk damage, t otal dose and Single Event Effects) induced by protons and heavy ions on se miconductor detectors, electronic devices and systems. SIRAD is at present routinely used by groups involved in detector development for elementary pa rticle physics, in electronic device physics and in space applications. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
