Swiss Spallation Neutron Source SINQ - Call for proposals I/17


Date: 16/01/2017

The next DEADLINE for the submission of beam time requests for the Swiss
spallation neutron source ‘SINQ’ will be:

********* February 20, 2017, midnight *********

Herewith we call for proposals for the beam time period I/17 between
01/05/2017 and 31/10/2017.

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/17:

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, N-Microscope (*)

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.

(*) Please note:
The new ‘Neutron Microscope’ is a high spatial resolution (5 micrometers) neutron imaging instrument now available for users at SINQ. It is designed as a self-contained instrument that can be transferred between different beamlines. From now on it is available for the user community at POLDI and ICON. More information:
For the beamtime application please choose ‘Neutron Microscope’ as instrument and later on select
either POLDI or ICON as preferred instrument to perform the experiment.

Proposals should solely be submitted electronically via the PSI Digital User Office ‘DUO’:
