Thesis

Calibration of the LZ scientific payload and design

JOB ID THE-01

Description The Lunar Zebro main scientific payload is a radiation monitor which will measure the ionizing dose rate on the Moon Surface. The compact instrument is based on Floating Gate Dosimeter (FGDOS) sensors. A preliminary design of the payload has been finalized and it is currently undergoing the first characterization campaign at the proton facility HollandPTC in Delft. In this thesis the characterization of the payload will be extended by using different radiation sources like Co60 and the mixedfield environment provided by the CHARM facility at CERN (Geneva). The data will be analyzed and a second iteration of the design will be carried out in order to include the lessons learned from the functional, environmental and calibration campaigns.

Modeling of the LZ payload for design validation

JOB ID THE-02

Description The Lunar Zebro main scientific payload is a radiation monitor which will measure the ionizing dose rate on the Moon Surface. The compact instrument is based on Floating Gate Dosimeter (FGDOS) sensors. A preliminary design of the payload has been finalized and it is currently undergoing the first characterization campaign at the proton facility HollandPTC in Delft. In this thesis a Monte Carlo simulation (based on FLUKA or Geant4) will be developed and the expected measurements will be generated in different environments including the calibration campaign and the space mission scenarios. The calibration data will be used for validation of the Monte Carlo model. Recommendations for the second generation payload will be derived by the simulation outputs and feed to the engineering team working on the payload design.
