Beam time requests
The PSI secondary beam lines are available for external users. The use of those beam lines is coordinated at the users' meetings (Benützerversammlung, BV), which takes place usually each February at PSI. The users' meetings are chaired by the president of the Research Committee and open to the PSI users community. In the meetings new proposals are presented and discussed, and beam time distributions are worked out.
Current Coronavirus Situation
June 17th, 2020
The restart of operating the PSI high intensity proton accelerator (HIPA) is expected to be delayed by about 2 months due to the Coronavirus situation. The pandemic team of PSI approved a scenario where in-house research at the secondary beamlines will be possible from mid of July on. External users at HIPA will only be allowed as of September 1st 2020.
All groups which got assigned beam time in 2020 at PSI have been contacted to update their requests. A modified schedule has been worked out and confirmed by our scientific advisory committee and can be found here.
For all experiments foreign travel restrictions and entry requirements into Switzerland need to be carefully considered.
