User Administrative contact: L.
Dunn, tel. 650-926-2087
Approximately five to eight shifts
may be scheduled for Rapid Access beam time each month. Applications are reviewed
by SSRL's Proposal Review Panel for scientific merit and feasibility.
The Rapid Access application
may be used to request beam time for data collection during a single
Only one project per Principal
Investigator may be scheduled for Rapid Access time within a given month.
If multiple spokespersons in a group submit applications, the PI will be
asked to set priority for scheduling the experiments.
Spokespersons should expect to hear back from SSRL within a few weeks
of submittal. If the application has been approved
with the highest
rating among the submissions for a given deadline, beam time will
be assigned within a month or two of the original submittal. If the
application has been
approved for beam time but assigned a lower rating, it will be put on
a waiting list for beam time during the next block of Rapid Access time or
for consideration to fill cancellations of regularly scheduled beam time.
Agreement(s) must be fully executed between Stanford University and
the spokesperson's home institution and all collaborator institutions (if personnel
physically coming to SSRL) before beam time.
It is highly recommended that first-time users to SSRL come to the facility for
their first allocation of beam time before requesting remote access.
