Here below a short Review about Irradiation Facilities , and their availability, meant to make R&D for FCal ( HCal and ECal ) Phase I and PhaseII wrt radiation hardness of materials, photosensors, fibers, readout electronics etc. as components of the Hcal and ECal detectors, mainly their End Cap, since the special challenge of Luminosity and consequent PieUp effects that hte EndCap region will be affected by, during Phase I and Phase II.

Radiation Facilities that have been used in the past ( Cal R&D for Run1) will still be used. Some have/are being undergoing upgrades, nad will be temporarily unavailable. With time, more facilities have been "discovered" and added up tot he list of possibilities; each R&D group is having its own priorities due to fluences values, reachability, logisitics, financial, so each group will at the end make its own best choice, thought he intent of this review is to make all groups aware of the Facilities available all over and their properties, so that their choice will be optimized.

TestBeam Facilities will also be listed for completeness wherever possible.
