The Particle Physics and Nuclear Physics Groups at the University of Birmingham have been operating the MC40 cyclotron with UK colleagues from Sheffield and Liverpool since 2013 as an irradiation facility for nuclear, medical and particle physics collaborations, such as RD50, ATLAS and LHCb. This facility offers a proton beam with energy up to 40MeV and currents as high as 2uA, allowing to...

A new 24GEv/c proton irradiation facility replaced the old CERN facility in 2014. An experimental determination of the hardness factor of the new facility is ongoing. Results on the scaling of the leakage current with increasing fluence for several irradiations performed in 2015 and 2016 will be presented.

Planar hybrid silicon sensors are a well proven technology for past and current particle tracking detectors in HEP experiments. However, the future high-luminosity upgrades of the inner trackers at the LHC experiments pose big challenges to the detectors. The first challenge is an expected radiation damage level of 2E16 n_eq cm^-2. The second challenge is the large detector areas which have to...
