Welcome to the Proton Irradiation Facility Group 

Our activities cover instrumental research and development with emphasis on adapting of novel detection methods used on ground for explorations in space. We apply and utilise specialized radiation and test facilities to characterise new instruments, materials and components that are designed to operate either in harsh radiation environments in space or in accelerators and particle physics experiments

Several our devices fly on such space observatories like XMM-Newton or RHESSI. Set of radiation monitors developed together with our partners from industry and European Space Agency is placed on INTEGRAL, Rosetta, PROBA1 and Giove B (GPS) missions. Our current activities include the design of a new generation radiation monitors with the low energy electron detector LEED. We are also involved in development of a novel hard X-ray polarimeter POLAR.
