Studsvik Neutron Research Laboratory (NFL)
EU funded Access to Research Infrastructures Program

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.

There are no deadlines for receipt of proposals. These are all dealt with on
an individual basis. Proposals are refereed by a panel of international
experts, 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 program, 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.

Six instruments are scheduled:
REST       Diffractometer for residual stress and texture measurements
NPD        High resolution powder diffractometer
SLAD      Disordered materials diffractometer (liquids, glasses, crystals)
SXD        Single crystal diffractometer
TTOF      Thermal time of flight spectrometer
OSIRIS    Radioactive ion source and on-line isotope separator
