The 3rd RADECS Thematic Workshop focussing on “Single Event Transient” will take place at the Paul Scherrer Institut, CH-5232 Villigen, Switzerland on January 29th 2009. The Workshop technical programme will feature invited oral presentations addressing all issues around SET. These presentations, covered in 7 blocks, will be focussing on current SET experiences obtained by agencies, industry and manufacturer. Open discussion during and after each presentation will allow attendee to take active part in this Workshop – which goal is ‘Better Awareness of SET Issues’.  This event has again been combined with the ESA/ESTEC Final Presentation Day on January 27th and in the morning of January 28th 2007, where also a series of CNES Final Presentations will be scheduled. In the afternoon there will be the opportunity to visit the Paul Scherrer Institut and the newly opened PROSCAN – Proton Irradiation Facility – which is a follow on to the first PIF being part of ESAs European Component Irradiation Facilities. 

Participation is open and free of charge – but requires pre-registration.



First day is the presentation of all R&D studies, in radiation effects fields, supported by ESA funding. We take the opportunity to have all European radiation effects community to organized a dedicated QCA RADECS day on a "hot" subject.
