Radiation effects on solid state optoelectronic detectors
Tue November 27, 2018, from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM
Two years after a very fruitful fourth edition of this event, CNES, ESA, AIRBUS DEFENCE&SPACE, THALES ALENIA SPACE, SODERN, TELEDYNE E2V and ISAE SUPAERO are pleased to invite you to the 5th edition of the Workshop focused on radiation effects on optoelectronic detectors. This event will be held in Toulouse on November the 27-28th 2018 within the framework of the Optics & Optoelectronics (OOE) and Environment (ENV) Community of expert (COMET).

Event details

Optoelectronic detectors (image sensors, radiometric sensors, CIS, CCD…) are key elements in space and scientific instruments, and their performances have direct impact on the overall mission capability. It is well known that, in space application, radiation can strongly degrade major performance characteristics of optoelectronic detectors and even prevent their operation. Current and future space programs are more and more demanding in terms of lifetime and of End-Of-Life performance commitments, requesting deeper on-ground investigations. In addition, the evolution of CMOS and photodetector technologies induces new uncertainties regarding the behaviour of next generation detectors in Space.

The aim of this Workshop is to focus on radiation-induced effects either during ground tests or in-flight, on all types of detectors and technologies.

Although the workshop is mostly oriented to Visible/IR spectral range, this event is fully open to researchers/user working within other wavelength ranges. Developer working on non-space applications dealing with the same topics (Nuclear Physics, Medical Imaging…) are equally welcome to participate to this Workshop.

Papers are solicited in the following areas:

 Basic Mechanisms of Radiation Effects on Optoelectronic Detectors

  • Single Event Effects
  • Displacement Damage Effects
  • Total Ionising Dose Effects

 Radiation Effects on Optoelectronic Detectors Performances

  • Ground Irradiation Tests
  • In-flight Results
  • Impact of Performance Drift on Satellite Performances

 Radiation Test Methodology and Facilities

  • Test Guidelines, Qualification Plan
  • Radiations Facilities
  • Characterization Procedures

 Radiation Tolerances of Optoelectronic Detectors

  • Mitigation Techniques
  • Radiation Hardened Design and Technology
  • Specific Operation Modes 
 Abstract submission

The authors are requested to prepare a one or two pages abstract in order to illustrate the relevance of their work (E-mail for abstract submission: comet-ooe@cnes.fr). Oral and poster presentations are proposed. Oral presentations shall be limited to 20 minutes + 5 minutes for questions. The interactive poster session will be held at the end of the day, during the cocktail.

Electronic proceeding will contain slides of the oral presentations and posters.




This Workshop is coupled with “Ultra-Violet Detectors and instruments” workshop which will be held the 28-29th of November. The two workshops could share the poster session and the cocktail.
