In addition to the main synchrotron beamline, XMaS also provides access to offline resources. Primarily functioning to support the research activities during beamtime, users can also apply to access these facilities for independent studies. Applications can be made any time.
Follow the instructions carefully and do not forget to upload your 1-2 page proposal at the end of the application form. Please contact the local staff to discuss any potential experiments. Successful offline proposals will be run as in-house experiments.
We will complete the safety form with the information supplied in your application form as well as arrange site passes and any accommodation that may be required. For synchrotron beamtime, offline users normally stay in the ESRF guest house or off-site hotels.
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion:
The XMaS facility will implement transparent policies and procedures to guarantee that access is based on scientific excellence only. In partnership with the ESRF Safety office, we will endeavour to ensure that the facility can accommodate any user, but this may require an individual needs assessment. If you have any questions about accessing the facility at any stage of the application or experimental processes please do not hesitate to get in touch.
