The beamline is open for a limited number of proposals from general users. The scheduling periods and deadlines for calls for proposals can be found in detail at SLS Proposal Calls.
If you require extra time for sample preparation and/or STM work, please declare how much time is needed for preparation, STM and photoemission, and include that time in the number of requested shifts.
Scheduling of user beamtime can be found at the SLS Operation Calendar.
It is recommended that the proposer contact the relevant beamline scientist (see Staff) to obtain any information required for preparing his/her experiment prior to the beamtime. It is essential that the forthcoming user has checked the following topics with the beamline scientist:
- Sample mounting
- Sample preparation
- Beam parameters
- Measurement modes
- Shipping of devices and/or samples
Shipping of devices and/or samplesBe aware that Switzerland is not part of the European Union. Valid documents are required for any devices, samples and tools you bring or ship to Switzerland. Without valid documents, shipments can be delayed by several business days!
Please refer to the procedures in the General Shipping Instructions document. For large or expensive instruments a Carnet ATA is recommended (procedure A). Smaller items such as samples (procedure C) or evaporators (procedure D) can be sent with a pro-forma invoice. The necessary forms can be found here. Please register all shipments with our import/export manager at least two days before shipping.
Hazardous chemicals cannot be sent to PSI and will be refused.
