Thanks to the possibility recently offered by ILL to extend the operational period of IN13 to late 2021, under specific contract conditions between UGA and ILL, we will be able to operate the instrument while preparing the renewal of the next 5-years contract. This represents a very good opportunity that we have to exploit at best. Thus, we can now offer beamtime during the second and third cycle of 2021 (May-July and August-October).
We decided to take advantage of this exceptional regime of instrument exploitation to explore new thematics and attract new users. The output of this period will help in drawing the scientific perspective of the instrument, in view of the upgrade that will take place in 2022. Therefore, experiments in physics, chemistry or material science are encouraged, to enrich the well established possibilities in biology and biophysics. For technical reasons, experiments requiring specific or particular conditions for their feasibility (high pressure, high temperature, special sample environment...) will nevertheless be checked case by case.
Two modalities are possible for asking for beamtime:
Prior to submission and independently for the chosen modality, we invite potential users to get in contact with the instrument team (firstname.lastname@example.org) to define properly the experimental conditions and check the feasibility of the experiment. We are looking forward to receiving your proposal
From the IN13 instrument team.
