Swiss spallation neutron source SINQDescription
The next DEADLINE for the submission of beam time requests for the Swiss spallation neutron source ‘SINQ’ http://www.psi.ch/sinq will be May 15, 2013, midnight.
Herewith we call for proposals for the beam time period II/13 between 01/10/2013 and 23/12/2013.
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/13:
Powder Diffractometers : HRPT, DMC
Single Crystal Diffractometer : 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 (cycle for imaging experiments will start on Sep 1)
(*): The new thermal triple-axis spectrometer EIGER is available for user operation since a couple of months and is ready to receive proposals. Interested users are kindly requested to contact the instrument responsible in advance of submitting a proposal to discuss the feasibility of the planned experiments:
