A call for proposal will open February 7 with closing deadline March 7, 2023. For more general information about the call see https://www.maxiv.lu.se/user-access/call-for-proposals/.

MicroMAX is open for standard and BAG 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 (beam size down to 5 micrometer).

The commissioning of this functionality will happen during spring 2023. We expect to open for general users after the 2023 summer shutdown but the exact date depends on the progress. Since this functionality overlaps with BioMAX we encourage users to apply for both beamlines so that the choice of beamline can be decided at the time of scheduling.

We also invite proposals for expert commissioning proposals to help test and develop the functionality of the beamline. These calls are 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 (see top of right hand side menu) for questions regarding the call. All users are encouraged to get in contact before submitting a proposal, in particular for the commissioning experts call.
