- Electron beam irradiation services
IAD is providing electron beam and X-ray irradiation/processing services for R&D samples and experimental lots for process verification/demonstration using 10 MeV electron linacs at ARPF. If you are interested in availing/demonstration of the irradiation for your samples/lots, please fill-in the request given at Point 6 below and send at email@example.com with a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Electron beam irradiation
Electron beam services are available for R&D samples and experimental lots up to a few kg and doses from 10 Gy up to hundreds of MGy (examples: seeds for mutation breeding, gem irradiation for colour modification (Topaz, beryl, diamond), radiation damage studies of electronic devices, property modification studies etc.)
- Photon (X-ray) irradiation
For research samples up to a few kg and doses from 10 Gy up to 10 kGy.
Dosimetry report along with the irradiated sample can be provided if requested.
- Microbial analysis of the samples
Microbial analysis results can be provided when required.
- Examples of electron beam irradiation done recently
Crop seeds (rice, wheat, ground nut, black gram etc.) for mutation breeding, agricultural commodities for phytosanitary research, medical devices for sterilization process verification, irradiation damage study of components for space applications, electronic components, material samples for research including steels, glasses and gem stones (Topaz) irradiation for development of exotic colors.
- Request for sample irradiation and undertaking
