Calls for proposals SLS and SwissFEL are open now
Calls for proposals are open for both photon user facilities at PSI: SLS (non-PX beamlines only) and SwissFEL. In both cases the submission deadline will be 15 September 2022 (midnight, CEST).
For SLS this call for proposals covers the beamtime from January - October 2023, i.e., over nine rather than six months and is the last call for proposals before the long shutdown to upgrade the SLS. Assuming that supply chains and related issues do not deteriorate further, the upgrade shutdown is planned to start on 2 October 2023. First pilot users for selected beamlines at SLS 2.0 are expected in the Summer/Fall of 2025, which will be followed by a shutdown beginning of 2026. The first regular call for proposal is planned for the Spring 2026.
For SwissFEL this is a regular call for the period January - June 2023 for the instruments ARAMIS-ALVRA and -BERNINA as well as for ATHOS-MALOJA.
We are looking forward to many interesting beamtime applications.
