Displacement Damage Testing

Ionizing Radiation and Radioactivity

Displacement Damage Testing

At Seibersdorf Laboratories, we offer comprehensive Displacement Damage (DD) or Total-Non Ionizing Dose (TNID) testing services to assess the resilience of electronic components against radiation-induced damage. Our expertise in DD testing encompasses thorough test preparation, setup development, and testing execution, ensuring accurate and reliable results for our clients.


In-House Test Preparation

We take pride in our ability to handle all aspects of test preparation in-house, including the development of test setups tailored to the specific requirements of each testing scenario. Our experienced team collaborates closely with clients to understand their needs and devise customized testing protocols to address them effectively.

Utilization of Partner Facilities

For the actual testing phase, we leverage the beam time of partner facilities equipped with proton or neutron irradiation capabilities. This strategic partnership allows us to access state-of-the-art equipment and resources necessary for conducting precise and controlled DD testing.

Relevant Test Standards

Our DD testing procedures adhere to industry-standard guidelines to ensure the accuracy and reliability of our results. Key standards include ESCC 22500, which provides guidelines for displacement damage irradiation testing. Additionally, we follow relevant standards for neutron testing, including MIL-STD-883, Method 1017.

Comprehensive Testing Services

Our DD testing services are tailored to meet the diverse needs of our clients across various industries, including aerospace, nuclear, and semiconductor manufacturing. Whether assessing the effects of radiation on individual components or evaluating the performance of complex systems, we are committed to delivering accurate and actionable data to support informed decision-making.

At Seibersdorf Laboratories, we strive to be your trusted partner for Displacement Damage testing, providing expertise, reliability, and precision in every phase of the testing process. Trust us to safeguard the integrity and performance of your electronic components against the challenges of radiation-induced damage.
