• METU-DBL (Defocusing Beam Line) Project supported by the Ministry of Development Project will enable performing space radiation SEU (Single Event Upset) tests in Turkey. These tests can be conducted at the 30 MeV proton cyclotron at the Turkish Atomic Energy Agency (TAEK) Sarayköy Nuclear Research and Training Center (SANAEM) Proton Accelerator Facility (PAF) after completion the defocusing beam line. The project started in August 2015 and is funded with 7.000.000 TL. This project has a collaboration with CERN. Under this project, I worked on
- Simulation of the defocusing beamline with G4beamline program
- Secondary particles and dose calculation with FLUKA
- Simulation of solar cells with GEANT4 using the space environment provided by SPENVIS
During these studies, I have at CERN for a total 4 months over 6 visits.
