The TIFPA-INFN center is equipped with a 3 kW tungsten anode x-ray irradiation station used for biological and biophysics irradiations on cells and radiation damage studies on silicon sensors. Since in recent years the importance for high dose rate irradiations is emerging, not only for solid state silicon radiation damage studies but primarily for flash irradiation activities on cells for oncological studies, it is becoming mandatory to explore the limits of the irradiation stations. In this talk the station spectrum simulation realized with the spekpy python code for different operative station configurations and the corresponding dose rate measurements realized with a PTW FarmerChamber will be described.

Abstract

The TIFPA-INFN center is equipped with a 3 kW tungsten anode x-ray irradiation station used for biological and biophysics irradiations on cells and radiation damage studies on silicon sensors. Since in recent years the importance for high dose rate irradiations is emerging, not only for solid state silicon radiation damage studies but primarily for flash irradiation activities on cells for oncological studies, it is becoming mandatory to explore the limits of the irradiation stations. In this talk the station spectrum simulation realized with the spekpy python code for different operative station configurations and the corresponding dose rate measurements realized with a PTW FarmerChamber will be described.
