Radio Anechoic Chamber / DTU-ESA Spherical Near-Field Antenna Test Facility
For  years, the Radio Anechoic Chamber / DTU-ESA Facility has been used  extensively both for in-house research projects and teaching purposes, and for very accurate near-field measurements and calibrations of antennas conducted in collaboration with and by external partners; in particular the European Space Agency, ESA.

The facility is a radio anechoic  chamber intended for the determination of antenna characteristics in the  frequency range from 300 MHz - 60 GHz. It is 14m long, 12m wide and 10m high (measured between the tips of absorbers).  The chamber and control room are enclosed in RF shielding.

DTU-ESA Spherical Near-Field Antenna Test Facility is a European Space Agency external reference laboratory for high-accuracy antenna testing operated by the Technical University of Denmark.

FORCE Technology:

FORCE Technology is Scandinavia’s leading technological service company covering a broad range of services. The Tech Tour will visit the “Product Compliance” division of FORCE Technology, a division that performs accredited compliance testing and certification against international regulatory. Moreover, FORCE Technology excels in, and is a strong proponent of, extreme testing to ensure the reliability of the product under test and that the product not only meets, but exceeds, all existing standards. It is thought that it will be of particular interest to the Tech Tours participants that FORCE Technology offers all types of EMC tests. Most notably do-it-yourself pre-testing, accredited testing and accelerated/extreme testing which tests at very high levels of electromagnetic noise.

FORCE Technology enjoys being CB testlab (CBTL) and CB national certification body (NCB). To this end, FORCE technology can make CB-certified reports.

ESS, the European Spallation Source

The European Spallation Source – which is under construction on the outskirts of Lund, Sweden - will both greatly exceed and complement those of today's leading neutron sources. It can be compared to a giant microscope for the study of different materials on nanoscale. The neutrons are generated by bombarding a helium-cooled tungsten target with protons from the most powerful linear proton accelerator ever built.

ESS is a large scale research facility with many interesting features not commonly considered by the community. The visit will focus on RF aspects of the linear particle accelerator (high power clystrons and beam control systems). ESS is still under construction, with machines currently being installed in the linear accelerator.
