Characterization of novel lightweight radiation shielding materials for space applications
Poster presented at European Conference on RADiation Effects on Components and Systems, RADECS 2016, Bremen, September 19th - 23rd, 2016
Novel materials or multilayers can help reduce the mass requirement for radiation shielding of electronic components significantly. In this study, potential alternatives to the standard aluminium shielding approach are assessed by Monte Carlo simulations and promising candidates are manufactured and characterized by radiation tests includingproton and electron tests.
