Getting beam time
You are at the right place to find any information regarding the instrument suite offered by MLZ: Each instrument has its own web page. A short description, scheme, typical applications and technical data are given. And the most important: Learn to know who the scientists responsible for the instrument are. It is highly recommended to contact them well in advance before submitting a proposal. They can help you with special requirements your experiment will need or advise you how to write a proper proposal.
If you like to get all information in black and white, you are surely interested in the Experimental Facilities brochure of the MLZ. Order your printed copy from the User Office by writing an email with your contact data to email@example.com
Before you can submit a proposal you need to register at the User Office online system.
Please note: At the moment, we are working with two User Office online Systems because we are introducing our new system called GhOST gradually. In order to submit a proposal you will use this new system! Due to this, you also need to register at this new systenm even if you have already an account at our current system.
After receiving the confirmation email you will gain access and can submit your proposal.
Don’t worry! Our new User Office systen GhOST offers detailed help: Each form filed has an information bubble and there is a help page as well!
A few insider tipps from the User Office team:
The review takes place about eight weeks after the proposal deadline. The dates are given on the User Office start page.
Another two weeks later you will be informed about the results by email. This time is necessary because the User Office has to inform the directorate of the results of the review. It has to approve the distribution of the beam time.
Within the Rapid Access programme, a limited number of days (up to a maximum of three beam days per reactor cycle) are allocated by a fast response process. It is devoted to those measurements which do not fit into the normal proposal workflow with two deadlines and reviews per year.
For the experiment of a successful Rapid Access proposal the presence of the user is not necessary and therefore the samples shall be sent to the designated local contact that carries out the proposed measurements. The main proposer will be provided with the raw experimental data as well as pre-treated data for further analysis.
