Tim Wagner

Postdoc researcher (WP08)


Tim Wagner began his studies in physics at the University of Bonn in 2012 and received his Bachelor and Master degrees by 2017. He then moved to the Nuclear Physics Institute at Forschungszentrum Jülich to do his PhD in collaboration with the RWTH Aachen University, which he finished in 2021. During his doctoral studies he worked with the particle accelerator COSY at Forschungszentrum Jülich. He is currently working as a Postdoc at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in the Biophysics group within the RADNEXT framework.


His work focuses on the GSI facility and its improvement for the irradiation of microelectronics within the RADNEXT program. A part of that is providing assistance for RADNEXT experiments coming to GSI, helping them to understand the capabilities of the GSI facility and also the differences compared to other facilities. The assistance also includes detailed planning in advance and the execution of the irradiation. Another part of his job is to implement a standardized irradiation procedure for microelectronics at GSI. To do this, a dedicated target station will be planned and built, making the irradiation easier to perform.
