The Centro Nacional de Aceleradores RAFAEL GARCIA-TENORIO VICE-DIRECTOR C.N.A. MINISTERIO DE EDUCACION Y CIENCIA
Centro Nacional de Aceleradores Established as an agreement between the University of Sevilla, Junta de Andalucia and C.S.I.C. in A National facility open to national and international collaboration with: - Other Universities and Health Care Centers (public, private). - Public Research Institutes. -Private companies. A good environment for the training od scientists and technicians ISO and ISO 9001 Certifications

A Centre of Reference in material analysis through the application of IBA techniques.
Spintronics applications Study of defects after ion implantation of transition metals (Ni) in SiC monocristals for application in spin electronics Collaboration: ICMM, MFA (Budapest); INSP (Paris); UNAM (Mexico) Ref: PSSc 5(2008)1374; NIMB 267(2009)1097
Archaeometry studies using external beam Large and non suitable for vacuum samples can be analyzed with the external beam
Micro-probe μ-PIXE Hot-particle Analysis Pu (L ) U (L ) A15 Scan 100x100 m 2 HP3 Scan 75x75 m 2 Pu and U concentration maps in hot particles with origin in the Palomares nuclear accident. Both elements are confined inside the particle.
A Centre of Reference in AMS and in 14 C dating
14 C: Bomb pulse effect in Mexico
Effect of Nuclear release of 129 I in the Baltic and North Sea J. Environ. Radioact., 1992, 15, 231 Algae from the coast of Sweden in the North and the Baltic Sea North Sea is much more affected by the releases of Sellafield and La Hague. No exchange with the Baltic Sea.
Plutonium isotopes in air filter samples (Seville) Seasonal trend (high values in summer). They were correlated with Saharan Dust Intrusion
A Centre of Reference in the development of radiation detectors instrumentation
Characterization of a strip Si detector for Radiotherapy dosis measurement U.Sevilla-CNA-INABENSA-HUVM-ESII Si strip detector inside a cilindrical phantom Measurement with a clinical electron accelerator PATENT SUBMITTED
Neutron CNA: astrophysics Performed two different activations that should correspond to measure the Maxwellian Average Cross Section (MACS) of 181 Ta at kT=30 keV and kT=55 keV by using MACS of Au as reference. The MACS is the fundamental ingredient for the calculation of the reaction rates of the elements with A>56 in the Universe. EXPERIMENTAL SETUP AT CNA Chamber designed, constructed and tested at LNL-INFN. Copper backing developed at Seville. Water cooling flowing around. Lithium foil.
A Centre of Reference in Medical Image and in Radiopharmaceutical syntheses.
Some molecules prepared at CNA Na[ 18 F]F for osseous and renal studies [18F]FLT as a cellular growth marker to obtain images for cancer diagnosis For pre-clinic research the following radio-pharmaceuticals are produced in CNA: FLT, FMISO, BF 4, NaF y 11 C-metionina
Cerebral Metabolism: Hipoxia-Ischemia Brain is pressed by a Fogarty balloon, and effects are monitored with FDG-PET and F- MISO images Project developed in collaboration with the Pediatric Neurosurgery Unit of the Hospital Virgen del Rocío. Fogarty balloon PtiO2 sensor
A Centre of Reference in the development and application of irradiations tests
Radiation hardness in fibre optics sensors used in particle-physics experiments In a first experiment it was determined the existence of a relation between the type of coating of the sensor and its response under irradiation of protons. In un second experiment it has been analyzed the effect of the protonic radiation in the response of nude sensors (withgout coating). (Detectors from Large Hadron Collider-CERN) Collaboration IFCA - CNA
Response of luminiscent materials to ionic radiation Reactors of Losses (escaping) Fusion of fast ions Diagnosis Luminiscence in scintillators (ZnS(Ag)) Luminosity Afterglow Detectors for plasma in ITER
Creation of a Service for irradiation of aeroespatial components Irradiation of electronic circuits (total dose and SEE) Irradiation of solar cells
