Infrastructure

The Space Research and Planetology Division has several large scale facilities for space-related environmental testing. Often these facilities cannot be found anywhere else in Switzerland and also provide a backup to other facilities within Swiss industry. Here we describe some of the infrastructure.

Ion beam calibrations from 5eV/q to 60keV/q

Calibration with neutral beams from 100 to 4000m/s

Ion beam calibrations from 10eV/q to 100keV/q, and neutral beam calibrations from 10eV to 2keV

Test facility for ENA detection technology

Facility for the simulation of the thermal environment in space
