"Prepare for the next decade"

RADECS 2019 will include a full-day Short Course on Monday September 16th.

This short course is intended for beginners as well as experts in the field. Background information and fundamental concepts will be presented before focusing on various effects and technologies that are, and will be in the next decade, at play. It will cover displacement damage and ionizing dose for silicon devices and emerging technologies. The issue of low energy protons for single event effects will be also addressed for space and high altitude environments. In addition, a talk on the complex challenge of mitigation techniques in FPGAs will be given. Finally, radiation hardness assurance strategies for aerospace systems will be presented.

Short Course Chair: Frédéric Wrobel, University of Montpellier
