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.

The 2018 call will be opened in January with a submission deadline on Feb 28, 2018, 23:59 (CET):
call for proposals Jan 16
submission deadline Feb 28
allocation period July - Dec 2018
Proposals should solely be submitted via the PSI Digital User Office, DUO login. This is a direct link to the X+N proposal submission process. In the "General" part, when choosing the instrument, please select "X+N-Powder-Diff" as an instrument. Further, just follow the instructions for the regular proposal submission.
