img 15/05/2022 : SINQ - Call for Proposals  
Dimanche 15/05/2022

imgThe next DEADLINE for the submission of beam time requests for the Swiss spallation neutron source  SINQ will be:

                   May 15, 2022, midnight, C.E.S.T.

This call is open for the following instruments:

Powder Diffractometer                     : HRPT
Single Crystal Diffractometer           : ZEBRA
Strain Scanner                                 : POLDI
Small Angle Neutron Scattering       : SANS-I
Triple-Axis Spectrometers                : TASP, EIGER
Multiplexing Spectrometer                : CAMEA
Time-of-Flight Spectrometer             : FOCUS
Instruments for Neutron Imaging and Optics  : NEUTRA, ICON, BOA

Please note:

For the first time the Neutron Optics beamline BOA is also open for proposals. Please contact the instrument scientists in advance if you intend to submit a BOA proposal.

Please note:

The Neutron Microscope can be chosen as experimental setup option on POLDI, ICON and BOA. The reflectometer AMOR that is being commissioned after its major upgrade and the new small angle scattering facility SANS-LLB that is presently being installed in collaboration with our French partners from LLB both might take some friendly users later this year. Please contact the instrument teams for further information.


PERIOD: Herewith we call for proposals for the beam time period II-22 between September and December 2022. We aim to inform the users in July 2022 about the results of the proposal evaluation.


PROPOSAL-SUBMISSION: New users are kindly asked to contact the instrument scientists 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.
The feasibility of complex experiments should always be discussed in advance with the instrument and sample environment scientists.


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