Targeted Challenge-driven Proposals: Molecular Water Science

The call for targeted challenge-driven proposals for PETRA III aims at research on a specific scientific topic defined by DESY Photon Science. Respective calls are announced via email and this website. There will be no fixed intervals for this type of call.

The first call of this type is dedicated to 'Molecular Water Science'

Water is key to life on our planet and plays a central role in a large number of environmental and technological processes starting from the complex aqueous contents of cells, to clouds in the atmosphere and aqueous catalytic cycles in industry. Climate change and environmental degradation are pressing existential threats to our planet and life as we know it. Any strategy to address these threats needs to deal with multiple challenges, such as the need for carbon-free energy production and the need for clean water.
To address these challenges, a vastly improved understanding of the underlying physical, chemical and biological processes is required; meaning the need a molecular-scale understanding of water and the role it plays in all aspects of life, chemistry and the environment. PETRA III beamlines offer a multitude of complementing methods for water science to exactly address open questions along these lines.


Deadline for proposal submission is
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
18 July 2022 until midnight local Hamburg time (CEST/UTC+2)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Proposals have to be submitted via DOOR

For detailed information on this new typa of proposal please consult this information.

FLASH

The call for proposals for FLASH is currently open.

Proposals have to be submitted via DOOR
Deadline for proposal submission is extended until
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  7 July 2022 until midnight local Hamburg time (CEST/UTC+2)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This call relates to beamtime from late June to December 2023. In order to facilitate a most efficient use of the FLASH beamtime it is expected that your own experimental setup, if provided, will be ready by June 2023.
