The missions of Indiana University and ISAT Hall emphasize research, education and service. Each of these three roles - creating knowledge, disseminating knowledge, and providing a service to the community - is of equal importance.
ISAT Hall accomplishes its service mission by supporting shared research facilities such as the Radiation Effects Research Program (RERP) platform, through operational support of public activities such as the IU Health Proton Therapy Center, by encouraging continued economic development within the state of Indiana, and by providing international access to particle beam radiation tools.
The RERP at ISAT Hall offers proton and neutron beams to outside users who conduct studies of single event upsets (SEUs), and displacement damage on micro- or opto-electronic devices, qualification of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components for applications at high altitudes and in space, and commercial studies such as the radiation hardness of materials like adhesives for use in high radiation environments.
ISAT Hall designed, built, operates and maintains the radiation machine that is the heart of the IU Health Proton Therapy Center. Unlike traditional radiation machines, the Proton Therapy System (PTS) is an enormous device occupying more than 30% of the ISAT Hall footprint. The main stage cyclotron that accelerates the proton beam weighs as much as a modern Naval battleship and the beam lines extend for hundreds of linear feet. The staff at ISAT Hall is proud to play this role in providing state-of-the-art health care to Indiana, America and the world.
The Indiana University Integrated Science and Accelerator Technology Hall collaborates with researchers and scientists throughout Indiana University to develop state-of-the-art devices destined to advance the frontiers of science. Our dedicated faculty, scientists, students, professionals and technicians work cooperatively to design, fabricate, assemble and test devices ranging in scale from microscopic to several hundred tons.
ISAT Hall encourages the development of licensing agreements to allow sharing of technologies realized at this laboratory with willing commercial partners. Licensing agreements are established through the Indiana University Research & Technology Corporation (IURTC).
Interested commercial partners should contact the ISAT Hall technology transfer liaison to establish such a licensing agreement.
