The core facility is open for researchers at KI.

Education and access

Education is required in order to use the equipment. You have to attend an "Introduction to radiation protection"-course prior to start using the X-ray irradiators.

  • You need to have completed the "Introduction to radiation protection"-course no longer than five years ago. Please provide a certificate when contacting the experts for access. If your certificate is older than five years or if you have not completed a similar course previously, you will need to register for one.
  • If you have attended an equivalent course, you need to provide a certificate and sign up for an onsite introduction to get access to the X-ray irradiator.
