New call for proposals for beamtime

A call for User proposals will open on August 7, 2017 and close on September 7, 2017. This call is for proposals requesting beam time at the BioMAX, HIPPIE, and NanoMAX beamlines in the scientific areas Structural Biology, Spectroscopy, and Nano Sciences.

Beam time will be allocated from December 2017 to July 2018.

About the available beamlines.

The three beam lines are still not fully developed with only part of the experimental capabilities being available yet. The present call is limited to experiments that are feasible with the instrumentation expected to be available from December 2017. Detailed information on the expected capabilities of BioMAX, HIPPIE and NanoMAX can be found at their respective web pages. These pages will be updated regularly until August 7. Please do not hesitate to contact the beamline teams to discuss whether your experiments are feasible during the period in which beam time will be allocated.

How to submit a proposal.

Proposals as well as sample declarations must be submitted through our DUO-system. The proposals will be reviewed for technical feasibility and safety by MAX IV staff while scientific excellence will be assessed by our Programme Advisory Committee (PAC).  A decision will be taken at the Early November 2017 and communicated in the middle of November 2017.

New commissioning experts call this autumn.

We are also preparing a call for commissioning experts for the VERITAS beam line at the 3 GeV ring, the BLOCH, FinEstBeaMS and SPECIES beamlines at the 1.5 GeV ring and the FemtoMAX beamline at the short-pulse facility. The commissioning expert call will be opened at a later date during the Autumn. More information on these calls as well as the technical expertise we require for the commissioning expert call will appear on our website nearer to the opening of these calls.
