CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Studsvik Neutron Research Laboratory (NFL)
EU funded Access to Research Infrastructures Programme
NFL is the Swedish Centre for reactor based research using neutrons in
physics, chemistry and materials science. Under our Access to Research
Infrastructures contract a total of 105 days of beam time is available per
year for users from EU countries and associated states, supporting the cost
of the beam time, travel and subsistence. We expect that the EU sponsored
access will continue in 2004 under FP6 with broadly similar arrangement to
the current scheme.
The deadlines for proposals are 15 September, 15 January and 15 May.
Accepted proposals can usually be scheduled quickly. Proposals arriving
after the deadline will still be processed but we can not guarantee quick
A panel of international experts referees proposals, mainly by E-mail/FAX.
We recommend that you discuss your proposals with NFL instrument scientists
before submission. You are also given the opportunity to make
modifications, if necessary, on the basis of the comments of the referee
panel. Depending on the final results of the refereeing process, and
confirmation from Brussels that you are eligible for support under the
programme, your experiment can then be scheduled. The time between proposal
and experiment can be as short as a few weeks. We hope that this will make
it easier for you to carry out your research programs.
It is also possible to apply for training of new students, or training in
new techniques. In this case the proposal does not have to be linked to a
specific experiment - in some cases it is more effective to use a 'model'
experiment for training purposes.
Five instruments are scheduled:
REST Diffractometer for residual stress and texture measurements
NPD High resolution powder diffractometer
SLAD Disordered materials diffractometer (liquids, glasses,
SXD Single crystal diffractometer
OSIRIS Radioactive ion source and on-line isotope separator
Proposal forms, contact information and instrument details are available
