Call for Your Participation to 1st NSRL ICCHIBAN

Dear ICCHIBAN/WRMISS participants,

We are pleased to announce the NSRL ICCHIBAN experiment scheduled for 25-28 September 2004 at the new NASA Space Radiation Laboratory (NSRL) facility at Brookhaven National Laboratory, New York, USA. This experiment will be devoted to intercomparison of the response of both active and passive detectors used for crew and area dosimetery aboard spacecraft. NSRL ICCHIBAN differs from previous ICCHIBAN experiments carried out at the NIRS HIMAC and the Loma Linda University proton synchrotron since we will be using heavy ion beams of appreciably higher energy. The following beams will be used for NSRL ICCHIBAN:

1 GeV/n Fe
1-2 GeV protons
1.2 GeV/n Si or 1 GeV/n O (yet to be determined)

Details concerning the NSRL ICCHIBAN experiment will be emailed to you shortly.

If you are interested in participating in the NSRL ICCHIBAN experiment,please let us know immediately. Also, please let us know what detector(s) you plan to irradiation (active and/or passive). For laboratories using passive dosimeters, as in previous ICCHIBAN experiments, you do not have to be present at NSRL to participate. You may send your detectors directly to us at NSRL (details to be provided shortly).

With best regards,
Eric Benton, Jack Miller, Yukio Uchihori and ICCHIBAN Working Group
