Radiation Effects Testing

ProNova Solutions offers radiation effects testing with a dedicated beam line for researchers from industry, government agencies, and academic institutions to conduct proton testing.

Ideal for SEE and TID Testing

Our Knoxville radiation testing services offer researchers a proton beam line that allows for customizable testing of circuit boards and VLSI electronic components for single event effects (SEE) and total ionizing dose (TID) evaluation.

Applications benefiting include:

  • Space electronics and components
  • Military and missile defense
  • Aviation
  • High reliability computing
  • High density data storage
  • Material damage studies
  • Shielding evaluation

Our dedicated accelerator and beam line eliminates any beam sharing with the operating clinic, giving test teams the benefit of weekday testing with 100% uninterrupted access to the beam in a spacious test room and convenient data acquisition area.

Hours of Operation

We offer beam availability Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.  Weekend testing available upon request.  Please see Contact Information below.
