The next DEADLINE for the submission of beam time requests for the Swiss spallation neutron source SINQ will be: November 15, 2015, midnight.
Herewith we call for proposals for the beam time period I/16 between 01/05/2016 and 31/08/2016.
New users are kindly asked to contact the instrument responsibles before submitting a proposal to discuss instrumental options and reasonable beam time requests. Please make use of the option to link related previous proposals with their experimental reports to the new one. A proper mention of previous results will provide a certain ‘bonus’ during the evaluation process. This new feature replaces the previous option to submit ‘continuation proposals’.
Guidelines for the proposal submission and further useful information can be found on the SINQ webpages:
The following instruments will be open for new proposals in cycle I/16:
Powder Diffractometers : HRPT, DMC
Single Crystal Diffractometer : ZEBRA (formely TRICS)
Strain Scanner : POLDI
Small Angle Scattering : SANS-I, SANS-II
Reflectometer : AMOR
Triple Axis Spectrometers : TASP, RITA-II, EIGER
Time-of-Flight Spectrometer : FOCUS
Radiography, Imaging : NEUTRA, ICON
Further detailed information about the SINQ instruments can be obtained here .
Please note, the feasibility of complex experiments should always be discussed in advance with the instrument and sample environment responsibles.
Proposals should solely be submitted electronically via the PSI Digital User Office DUO .
SINQ is part of the ‘NMI3-Access Program’ of the European Commission. Users from eligible countries might be supported by reimbursement of travel and accommodation costs. For further info please have a look at http://www.psi.ch/useroffice/sinqss-nmi3.
