Since 1957, Australia has been an integral part of many deep-space NASA missions. Ever since, its role in Space science and exploration has grown internationally. In this talk, Marco Petasecca will talk about the recently founded National Space Qualification Network (NSQN), which aggregates in a synergic group Australia’s most sophisticated space qualification infrastructures. NSQN's mission is to provide industry with easy access to a single ecosystem of space qualification, including capabilities and word leading expertise. This webinar is part of a general series on present and future radiation facilities around the world.
Assoc. Prof. Petasecca holds a tenure position at the School of Physics of the University of Wollongong. He has researched all aspects of radiation damage in electronics and sensors. As a member of the CERN international collaboration RD50, he has also developed a model of radiation damage which has been used for the design of the inner tracker upgrade of LCH.
