If a preliminary investigation is necessary for prove-of-principle, we propose that the instrument scientist is contacted in advance and prior to proposal submission for a 1 x test scan using the above email address. There is no cost associated with the “proof-of-principle” scanning. It is recommended that first-time users, or not knowledgeable if the scanning will be successful, use the “proof-of-principle” opportunity.

Note that beam-time is not guaranteed and that technical difficulties may result in cancellation or postponement of experiments at any time. Everything is done to limit down-time and to accommodate lost-time.

Other instruments – Continuous call

Contact the appropriate beam line scientist to discuss instrument availability and project feasibility.
