Dear colleagues,

We like to remind you to submit proposals for beam time at the instruments of JCNS at FRM II, ILL and SNS. The next deadline for the submission of proposals by external users is

Oct. 8 2010

The call is open for proposals on the following instruments of JCNS at FRM II for beam time in the period March to June 2011:


- The SANS instrument KWS-1 is in full operation for users at FRM II
- The focusing SANS instrument KWS-3 offers wave vector resolution between 10-4 and 10-3 Ang.-1.
- The backscattering instrument SPHERES with focusing option and operating phase-space transforming chopper offers highest energy resolution up to 0.65 microeV FWHM
- The spin echo spectrometer J-NSE is in full operation mode with polarized neutron flux of 10**7 n/cm**2/s at 7 Ang. wavelength.
- The diffuse neutron scattering spectrometer DNS at FRM II for measuring diffuse scattering in magnetic systems or to separate coherent from incoherent scattering.
- Friendly users are invited to submit proposals for the new high intensity polarized neutron reflectometer MARIA

Details of the instruments are available at
More information can be obtained by contact to the instrument scientists.

Proposals for beam time at JCNS instruments at FRM II must be submitted electronically via the JCNS online user office system


JCNS participates in the FP7 NMI3 Access program which offers limited financial support to European users for travel, accommodation and daily allowance.

Furthermore German users (affiliation) are invited to submit proposals for beam time at the JCNS CRG instruments at ILL and SNS. Here beam time can be submitted for the following instruments:

IN22 (ILL)
D23 (ILL)

Details for the submission of proposals are found at

For questions regarding submission of proposals please contact the JCNS User Office neutron at fz-juelich.de
