Joint Proposals for X-ray (SLS) and neutron (SINQ) powder diffraction
Since 2008 PSI launches regularly annual calls for proposals for a joint use of both X-ray and neutron powder diffraction beamlines. At SLS the (Materials Science Beamline X04SA) and at SINQ both powder diffractometers HRPT (thermal neutrons) and DMC (cold neutrons) are involved.
The call is addressed to proposals for powder diffraction experiments in the fields of condensed matter, crystallography, chemistry, magnetism etc, for which the use of both synchrotron X-ray AND neutron diffraction is required and adequately justified.
There will be no X+N call in 2022 due to an extraordinarily large request for neutron beam time within the ordinary SINQ calls. We aim to resume the X+N calls in 2023.
