The XFEL-Hub has created a Beamtime Allocation Group (BAG) at Diamond Light Source. We have been granted 10 shifts of 12 h for the Allocation Period 25 (AP25): 8 shifts on I24 for serial crystallography experiments and 2 shifts on I04.
Why would I want to join the XFEL-Hub BAG?
We provide beamtime for serial crystallography experiments at Diamond as well as training for serial data processing. If you are interested in serial crystallography experiments and you have potential targets, or if you have an upcoming XFEL experiment, we offer to help you to test your samples at Diamond with different sample delivery methods. Getting prelinary data is crucial before applying for XFEL beamtime proposals. It is very important to test check following:
- Crystal density: the higher the better (until a certain point)
- Unit cell parameters at room temperature. It's crucial for data processing
- Crystal quality: diffraction quality, isomorphism
If you are interested to join our Diamond BAG, please contact us. You will receive an update when beamtime is available.
