End of Experiment Feedback forms must be submitted after beamtime by the Principal Investigator (PI) or Alternate Contact (AC) and these are mandatory. User Satisfaction Surveys can be completed by team members and are optional.Read more...
Team members who are eligible for support will receive an automatic email from the User Office after beamtime with a link to the online claim system.
Claims will be accepted for approved beam time only.
Up to three members of a team will be eligible for support. We will cover four users for complex experiments or to ensure safety is not compromised.
Travel costs for journeys between the home institution and Diamond Light Source, at the start and end of each experimental run, will be reimbursed by the most economical route.
Claims for food taken on the journey are not allowed.
Claims cannot be paid to any third party, e.g. home establishment. In this instance an invoice should be raised to which receipts should be attached. All documentation should be sent for the attention of the Diamond User Office who will process payment. It is important that the invoice references the beamtime visit and has the names of the users for which the costs were incurred. It should be sent as soon as possible after beamtime and no later than 3 months.
Diamond will not reimburse costs associated with obtaining a visa. These must be paid for by the individual concerned.
Note: Due to the high number of claims being submitted, claims may take up to two weeks to be processed by the User Office.Read more...
Users who have beamtime through programme access must produce a short report at the end of each six month allocation period. This report should emphasise the scientific highlights and the status of the project and must relate to any milestones specified in the original proposal. Any changes in strategy or problems which have been experienced must be identified. The report will be reviewed at the subsequent Peer Review meeting and further beamtime allocation will be assigned based on the previous period's results. The User Office will contact Programme Mode Principal Investigators to request completion of this information.Read more...
Users publishing work containing synchrotron data from Diamond Light Source should ensure they:
"We thank Diamond Light Source for access to beamline XXX (proposal number) that contributed to the results presented here"
For full details, please refer to the guidelines.
In addition anyone who has received access through the EU framework programme should acknowledge the relevant EU support by including the relevant statement
"The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under BioStruct-X (grant agreement No. 283570)."
We will contact you approximately six months after beamtime to give you the opportunity to complete an Annual Report form with a more complete description of your results and publications. We will look to include your work as a ‘highlight’ in the Annual Report and in the reports to the Board of Directors. In such cases we will confirm this with you, as Principal Investigator, beforehand.
You may be contacted by our Communications team to obtain authorisation to publish details of your experiment on the external website or in company literature.Read more...
