FLASH

The regular calls for FLASH proposals in fall 2020 and spring 2021 will be skipped. This is because the present COVID-19 situation forced us to postpone and reschedule many experiments, filling the corresponding beamtime slots. Furthermore, the FLASH2020+ upgrade programme to make FLASH brighter, faster and more flexible requires a first shutdown, starting end of 2021, as already announced.
We plan to issue the next call for proposals for FLASH in summer 2021 with the deadline on October 1st, 2021, and relating to beamtime in the second half of 2022. We sincerely apologise for any inconveniences that may be caused for your planning.
Registered DOOR users will be informed by e-mail about the call opening in 2021.
