There are several mechanisms to become an SSRL user, mutually compatible:
Additional information about proposal submission including links
to the appropriate forms and contact information to become a PRT or
set up a collaboration with staff can be found at:
A successful proposal has three components:
Make your proposal strong by balancing all three components; make a reasonable estimate of time and determine the appropriate beamlines that could be used for your experiment; contact any support staff member beforehand for advice if you have any questions. Looking at other successful proposals can be helpful.
Examples of justifications for synchrotron time include:
Spokespersons with active proposals are notified via email to submit a request. New requests are required three times a year and are due two months in advance each scheduling period.
Beamtine request forms are available from the URAWI database URAWI database
The forms provide options to request collaboration with staff, use of the sample mounting robot and remote data collection. Note: First time users are currently requested to collect data at the beamline once or to attend a training workshop at the SSRL before they perform the experiment remotely.
If you need an SSRL SMB Unix account (e.g. you have never collected data at the SSRL Macromolecular Crystallography beamlines before or you started a new group) please follow the instructions to request one.
If you have an active proposal and need beamtime urgently, please contact Lisa Dunn; there may be short notice openings because of cancellations or other reasons.
For information on additional administrative requirements once beam time has been assigned, lease consult the SMB ''Forms'' menu.
