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 II/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:
The feasibility of complex experiments should always be discussed in advance with the instrument and sample environment responsibles.
The high pressure Paris-Edinburgh Press sample environment option at SINQ is fully available again and we can offer also low temperature experiments using the that device. The best operational range of the cell is 7K, 6GPa and 300K, 9GPa.
