User Acess Ion Beam Center (IBC)
As an international competence and user center for ion beam physics and applications the IBC refers to many years of scientific and technical experience and aims to make available its facilities for ion implantation and irradiation, ion and plasma based deposition as well as ion beam analysis to users from research and industry.
Access to IBC is provided on a basis of a proposal procedure where continuous proposal submission is possible (no deadline). The scientific quality of the proposals is evaluated and ranked by an external international User Selection Panel. For successfully evaluated proposals, users get free access to IBC facilities for their experiments. For ion beam services the HZDR Innovation GmbH (spin-off of the HZDR) provides a direct and fast access to the facilities based on individual contracts.
