NEW: Rapid Access at P02.1 at PETRA III (Powder Diffraction and Total Scattering Beamline)

The Powder Diffraction and Total Scattering Beamline, P02.1, will be offering a rapid access in near future. This planned access route will allow users to send capillary mounted polycrystalline samples to DESY for measurement by beamline staff.

As soon as the submission procedure for rapid access proposals is implemented we will inform all users via DOOR.

Proposals will be reviewed on their scientific merit, technical feasibility and also on genuine need of rapid access (e.g. a measurement needed to complete a paper or a scientifically interesting study, which requires less than 2 shifts of normal beamtime).

If you have any technical questions relating to a rapid access proposal, please contact michael.wharmby@desy.de or other P02.1 beamline staff.

FLASH

The call for proposals for FLASH is published twice a year. The deadline is typically on 1 April and 1 October.
At present proposal submission is closed. The next call will be open from 22. July - 1. October 2019. Registered DOOR users will be informed by e-mail about the call opening.
