Current call for proposals for beamtime

  • An open call for proposals that require beamtime within education and training has been established. Further information can be found at the education & training proposal webpage.
  • The next general call for proposals for beamtime in the Autumn 2018 to Spring 2019 will be in March 2018.
  • A call for User proposals was opened 7 August 7 2017 and closed 7 September 2017. This call was for proposals requesting beamtime at the BioMAX, HIPPIE, and NanoMAX beamlines in the scientific areas Structural Biology, Spectroscopy, and Nano Sciences. The beamtime allocation period is from December 2017 to July 2018.

About the available beamlines.

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

How to submit a proposal.

All proposals as well as sample declarations must be submitted through the 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).

Commissioning experts call spring 2018.

We are preparing a call for commissioning experts for the BLOCH, FinEstBeaMS and SPECIES beamlines at the 1.5 GeV ring. The commissioning expert call will be opened in summer 2018. 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 this call.
