ECAC Schedule of Activities 2021

WCCAP: Information:
Unfortunately, due to the increased workload required by the pilotlabeling in ACTRIS and the creation of the preliminary recommendations for mobile platforms and chambers we are not able to perform optical workshops (Absorption Photometer, Integrating Nephelometer and Extinction Monitor) this year. Please apply for the workshops in 2022.

ERLAP: Yearly OCEC intercomparison by ERLAP

We herewith announce the upcoming yearly upcoming OCEC laboratory intercomparison. Please send your application to ECAC latest until 31st of December. The samples will be shipped around end of January. Results will come by the end of March.

CCC: Information:

Due to the covid related restrictions at University of Helsinki we had to postpone the planned CCC calibration-intercomparison workshop to next fall 2022.

Information:
To apply proceed to the  "APPLICATION PROCEDURE" page and download the "APPLICATION FORM" and submit over the form.

EMC2: Opportunity to access EMC2 services through RADIATE Transnational Access (TA)

LABEC, the INFN accelerator laboratory hosting the EMC2 unit, is participating in a European research infrastructure of ion beam facilities, RADIATE (https://www.ionbeamcenters.eu/), that currently offers transnational access (TA) to the external-beam PIXE-PIGE facility for atmospheric aerosol sample analysis to external users.
 
Member of ACTRIS can benefit of this opportunity for high-sensitivity and high-throughput elemental analysis of atmospheric aerosols collected on daily, hourly and size-segregated (e.g. impactor) samples, using Ion Beam Analysis techniques, typically PIXE and PIGE with 3 MeV proton beams and exploiting a dedicated detection set-up made by an array of Silicon Drift Detectors for X-ray spectroscopy. Given the pandemic situation hands-off experiments are welcomed: the user sends the aerosol samples, we will analyse them and then we will send them back.
 
The users have to submit a proposal to RADIATE’s proposal submission system, RADIATE GATE (https:// gate.hzdr.de/user/). Check this presentation as a guideline.
 
Access is granted free of charge to positively evaluated proposals. Download the proposal template to prepare your proposal.
 
Information on how to submit a measurement proposal to RADIATE TA can be found at the following website:
 
After the beam time at LABEC , once the measurements are finished, you will have to submit an experimental report in RADIATE GATE.

It is suggested that you contact Massimo Chiari (chiari@fi.infn.it) before submitting a proposal for advice on the beam analysis method and requested hours that are most appropriate, and for support in proposal submission.
