A call for proposal will open September 5 with closing deadline September 26, 2022. For more general information about the call see https://www.maxiv.lu.se/users/proposal-calls/.

MicroMAX will accept normal proposals for rotational crystallography with the MD3-UP diffractometer, ISARA sample changer and Eiger2 X CdTe 9M detector using the crystal monochromator and CRL focusing (down to 5 micrometer focus). X-ray commissioning of MicroMAX started in June 2022 but note that X-ray commissioning of the experiment setup has not yet started. The start of accepting users will depend on the progress but is predicted to start some time in Q2 2023 (the call is for the period to the summer shutdown 2023).

We also invite proposals for commissioning experts to help test and develop the functionality of the beamline. This call is for developing serial crystallography and time-resolved experiments. Fixed-target serial crystallography and possibly other sample delivery methods will be available. Both monochromators and CRL focusing will be available. The chopper, final one-micrometre focusing or integrating detector will not be available during this period.

Please contact Thomas Ursby for questions regarding the call. All users are encouraged to get in contact before submitting a proposal, in particular for the commissioning experts call.
