The next submission for proposals for AP35 is open. The AP covers the period April 2024 - October 2024. Proposals must be submitted by Wednesday 27th September 2023 at 17:00hrs UTC+1/GMT+1.
For submissions of proposals please see here: Apply for beamtime.
Diamond runs call for proposal every 6 months in the spring and the autumn, aiming for peer review meetings in May and October. The call goes out to users via email and the deadline will be listed here for your attention.
The peer review meetings will review proposals submitted for the following allocation periods which are set as:
1st week of April - end of September
1st week of October - end of March
The available beamline access routes are listed in the below. Proposals should be submitted on-line in UAS.
Resubmissions: you must make it clear in your proposal if it is a resubmission. Describe what you have changed to fulfill the panel's comments on the previous proposal.
If the proposal is awarded beamtime, it is expected that experimental results will be published. If you do not wish to publish your results, please approach our Industrial Liaison Office who offer a wide range of services to meet your research needs.
Important information on the pandemic working conditions at the beamlines can be found here.
From AP35, access to I06 will be changing within our User Administration System (UAS). When submitting your beamtime proposal you need to select which instrument within the I06 portfolio (I06 – Nanoscience (XPEEM), I06-1 – Nanoscience (Branchline) and I06-2 – Nanoscience (LaserPEEM offline facility)) you would like to access. Details for accessing these facilities can be found here, or contact a member of the beamline staff if you have any questions.
Users interested in performing experiments at any of I06 beamline capabilities are encouraged to contact a member of the beamline staff prior to proposal submission.
Proposals have to be submitted using Diamond proposal submission system - UAS ( http://uas.diamond.ac.uk/).
Information about the proposal system, scheduling periods, deadlines for calls for proposals, technical assessment and peer review of proposals can be found at https://www.diamond.ac.uk/Users/Apply-for-Beamtime.html.
In the UAS system, select the following instruments:
I06 - Nanoscience (XPEEM): for experiments requiring the X-ray Phoemission Electron Microscope end-station.
I06-1 - Nanoscience (Branchline): for experiments requiring the Superconducting Magnet (SCM), Diffraction and Dichroism (DD) or X-ray Absorption (XABS) end-stations
I06-2 - Nanoscience (LaserPEEM Offline Facility): for experiments requiring the offline PEEM end-station.
