In our eighth year of operations (April 2014 to end of March 2015), we received 1,275 proposals for experiments, which requested a total of 16,055 shifts. After peer-review, 642 proposals were awarded beamtime. This resulted in 7,815 experimental shifts being awarded, spread across 25 beamlines. We welcomed 4,988 user visits from academia and industry, with an additional 2,708 remote users.
* B16 is an optical testing beamline with 50% of beamtime for users.
