Below are the access modes the NanoMAX beamline participates in, and potentially useful notes regarding what is offered for each:
Fast access proposal allow for up to one day (six shifts) of beamtime at either of the two endstations at NanoMAX. These fast access proposals can be used for:
- Scientific Experiments [SE]
- Similar to a standard proposal, fast access proposals for [SE] have the intention to answer a scientific question. The proposed experiments can be stand alone or a follow up on a previous beamtime.
- Sample Feasibility studies [SF]
- [SF] aim at testing if a sample is even suited for more a more in-depth measurement via a standard proposal. The goal is not to record extensive datasets sufficient for a publication in itself, but rather an initial test to be as an argument in a follow up standard proposal. The concept of the proposed sample feasibility study should follow the idea of “one good sample, one good measurement”.
For details and the fast proposal template check out the general page about fast access proposals at MAX IV.
In any case it is strongly advised to contact the beamline staff prior to a submission to discuss the intended proposal.
Both endstations of the NanoMAX beamline are available for Proprietary users, please contact the MAX IV Industrial Relations Office for further information.
Both endstations of the NanoMAX beamline are open for standard access proposals. The submitted proposals will be peer reviewed and offer beamtime to a single scientific project.
It is strongly advised to contact the beamline staff prior to a submission to discuss the intended proposal.
