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 107 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 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.

Six 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
TTOF            Thermal time of flight spectrometer
OSIRIS          Radioactive ion source and on-line isotope separator

Proposal forms, contact information and instrument details are available
