Gamma Irradiators

The NRL can provide gamma-only irradiations using multiple different irradiators:

  1. The highest dose rate is achievable using a Co-60 underwater irradiator that provides gamma rays of 1173 keV and 1332 keV for in-situ irradiation of devices.
  2. A benchtop irradiator is also available for low dose-rate testing.
  3. A spot irradiator makes use of a source collimator to enable in-situ radiation-damage testing of an electronic device while minimizing the dose received by other devices nearby on the test board.
