Beamline I12 is currently operating at Level 3 (experiments run by staff on behalf of users. Limited staff presence to run experiments. No users on site. Strict social distancing and working protocols.)
After some trials, DLS is moving to Level 2. From October 2020, I12 will schedule cancelled AP27 experiments that are feasible under Level 2 conditions. (Limited staff presence on site, 1 or 2 users on the beamline. Strict social distancing and working protocols. Generally beam available from 09:00 Tuesday to 09:00 Saturday. Staff are not required to be on site at the weekend.)
Experiments which require operation at Level 1 (normal user operation) are unlikely to be scheduled, and Principal Investigators are encouraged to re-apply with a simplified experiment when the next call opens.
AP27 Principal Investigators have been contacted.
When a new call for proposals is made, experiments will be assessed for their feasibility at the expected operating Level. Please respect these points when writing your proposal:
Beamline I12-JEEP (Joint Engineering, Environmental, and Processing) is a high energy X-ray beamline for imaging, diffraction and scattering, which operates at energies of 53-150 keV.
General: All techniques use high-energy X-rays able to penetrate large samples or sample environments. Therefore sample preparation is simple and processes can often be studied under real-world conditions. For very high resolution in real space (< 2 µm) or in reciprocal space, lower X-ray energy techniques on other beamlines are more suitable.
