Irradiation of polymeric films

Dedicated equipment for irradiation of polymeric films: roller device, characteristics, beams possibilities...

The cave G4 is equipped with a roller device which allows irradiation of polymeric films according to the next figure:


 production of microporous membranes

  • The maximum width of the film is 50 cm
  • Possibility of different angles of incidence of the ions on the film.
  • Mechanical adjustments allow five speed ranges for irradiation.
  • Range

    Minimum speed


    Maximum speed



 *: to be confirmed

  •  GANIL beams (heavy ions, high energy and large intensity) allow real industrial production with various ion tracks density (up to 109 pps/cm2 )
  • Most used beam: Xe 7.6 MeV/u, Kr 10.5 MeV/u
  • Some samples can be done on demand; please contact: Technology Transfer Office



a Belgian company, IT4IP S.A., developing products based on ion track technology on polymers, works with the GANIL heavy ions beams since a few years.
