After beamtime, people are often tired and distracted. Hopefully the following checklist will help you ensure that you take everything you will need away from Diamond and leave the beamline and lab in a safe and clean condition.
The webpages of the User Office will tell you how to complete your Experiment Report.
You can retrieve data after your experiment. IT have written excellent instructions on how.
Data can be viewed on site or off site following a few simple steps. To take data away, we recommend setting up the Data Dispenser in the beamline control rooms of I22 at the start of your experiment, as this will record all your data on the hard drive or other recording media you attach to the dispenser. The dispenser creates a simultaneous clone of your experiment directory, which is ready to take away as soon as your experiment ends.
Currently there is a problem opening the data dispenser normally. As a workaround the login appears to work if a private browser window is opened first. To get a private window , use Ctrl + Shift + P or click on the three lines in the top right hand corner of the firefox browser window and select Open a private window then going to http://i22-dd001.diamond.ac.uk/
To access your data while you are on site is possible from a Diamond desktop (read-write) or your own laptop on the Visitor Network (read-only). The Visitor Network is accessed by WiFi (DLS_VIS) or over a wired connection on a beamline (Black Cat 6 patch cables). Instructions on how to do that can be found here.
For the off line data access Diamond computers can be accessed from your own computer with the NoMachine software. Here are more details on how you can install it. To retrieve your data from a previous session you will need to follow one of two separate routes depending on whether your visit was under or over 40 days ago.
