Abstract [en]

The objective of this thesis is to make a training material for KSU, which shows how radiation affects the different electronic components in a radiological environment.

All electronic systems in the presence of high ionizing radiation can experience difficulties and be destroyed.

This influence may compromise the control system and thus the safety of a nuclear reactor plant.

To achieve this objective requires a description of electronic components and sensors, to better understand its function.

This thesis will also show the possible solutions available that the author found interesting.

Organizations such as NASA, CERN and ESA have worked to develop electronic components immune to radiation. Those organizations have also developed a test protocol that guarantees to a certain extent the security of electronic components in a radiological environment.

Since we know how the material reacts with the radiation, it could develop a material that can be resistant to radiation or like CMOS technology has proposed, to reduce the component to avoid the storage of charge in the oxide.

Another solution can be the GRAPHENE. Its features will revolutionize the electronics and provide answer to the radiation problems, Graphene will replace Silicium and the electronic components will only have a few nanometers dimensions so the oxide area also reduces, and in this way avoid the known problem of storage of charge.
