Also known as “Rapid access”. This access mode is for the projects that require timely access to beamtime at MAX IV.

Available at: For a list of participating beamlines, see bottom of page.
Validity: 1 cycle.


Availability

Fast Access might be available under different conditions at different beamlines, for specifications please visit the beamline site. It is also strongly recommended that you always contact the beamline of interest for further discussions before submitting your proposal.

Below you will find the current Fast Access paths available at MAX IV:

MAX IV aims to communicate a decision within three weeks of proposal submission but response times may vary due to national holidays, machine shutdown periods etc.

  • Preliminary experiments to assess technical feasibility or to verify sample preparation, mainly to be used as a prestudy for a ‘Normal proposal’ (General User Access).
  • Handled on a first come first served basis.
  • This proposal type does not necessarily grant you access to the MAX IV facility, it is up to beamline staff to decide if this should be handled by mail in, remote or on site.

MAX IV aims to communicate a decision within three weeks of proposal submission and offer a scheduling opportunity within six weeks. Response times and scheduling possibilities may vary due to national holidays, machine shutdown periods etc.

  • Short, time-critical experiments which cannot wait until the next Call for proposals opens. Please note that this reason must be well articulated in the proposal.
  • The scientific case is evaluated by a member of the relevant Programme Advisory Committee (PAC).
  • This proposal type does not necessarily grant you access to the MAX IV facility, it is up to beamline staff to decide if should be handled by mail in, remote or on site.

MAX IV offer fast access for a set of predefined standard measurements, please see each available beamlines “Fast Access” page for further information.

  • A set of similar samples with a scope too small for a normal proposal.
  • Handled on a first come first served basis.
  • This proposal type does not grant you access to the MAX IV facility, samples are to be handled by mail in.


SARS-CoV-2 related research

In order to support science towards understanding the SARS-CoV-2 virus, MAX IV offers its instrumentation and beamtime to facilitate efforts to discover more about the virus and bring us closer to an effective vaccine, diagnostics or treatment.

If you wish to submit a project directly related to SARS-CoV-2, kindly contact MAX IV User Office.
