img 15/11/2020 : SINQ - Call for Proposals  
Dimanche 15/11/2020





We are pleased to announce the next call for proposals for the Swiss spallation neutron source SINQ at PSI!

The next DEADLINE for the submission of beam time requests for SINQ will be:

 *********  November 15, 2020, midnight, C.E.T.   *********

This call will be open for the following instruments:

  • Powder Diffractometer                     : HRPT
  • Single Crystal Diffractometer           : ZEBRA
  • Strain Scanner                                 : POLDI
  • Small Angle Scattering                     : SANS-I
  • Triple Axis Spectrometers                : TASP, EIGER
  • Time-of-Flight Spectrometer            : FOCUS
  • Neutron Imaging                               : NEUTRA, ICON

Please note;

The powder diffractometer DMC, the reflectometer AMOR and the triple-axis spectrometer CAMEA (replacement of former RITA-II) are undergoing major upgrades and thereafter the respective commissioning phase. The SINQ team aims to include them into the following call for proposals for the period September-December 2021.

The Neutron Microscope can be chosen as experimental setup  option on POLDI and ICON.



Herewith we call for proposals for the beam time period I/21 between May and August 2021.



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. 

Guidelines for the proposal submission and further useful information can be found on the SINQ webpages:

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.



Proposals can only be submitted electronically via the PSI Digital User Office 'DUO':
