FEES CHARGED FOR USE OF THE IBL ACCELERATORS

ANALYSIS AND IMPLANTATION SERVICES
The IBL does not currently provide complete implantation or materials analysis services. We do rent unused accelerator and implanter machine time for use by internal or external users. Fee schedules for this rental are available on request.

We do have a program whereby Industrial Affiliates (external companies) can rent a block of accelerator time which they then use for ion implantation or for materials analysis using such techniques as RBS, PIXE, NRA and Microbeam. Contact the persons listed below for more information about the program and for a list of Industrial Affiliates and the services they may provide.

 

Note: Accelerators must be controlled by a trained and authorized operator. The laboratory does not supply operator services. Arrangements must be made through faculty or private parties supplying these services. Operator training is available for persons who make extensive use of the accelerators.

Direct any inquiries to:

ACCELERATOR OPERATOR TRAINING POLICY

All control of the accelerators, implanters and associated beam equipment shall be conducted only by or under the direct supervision of persons certified by the Director or his designee as “Authorized Operators”. Such operators are responsible for the safety of all equipment being so controlled and all personnel permitted to be in the immediate area.

The Laboratory shall not be required to supply authorized operators for any user purposes, but shall attempt to meet the users’ needs by arranging appropriate training.

The Director shall designate training instructors and shall authorize training sessions and materials to meet the needs for qualified user-operators.
