ELI Beamlines is calling for First User Proposals

The ELI Beamlines Facility, the high-energy beam pillar of ELI invites the scientific community to submit proposals for the commissioning of instrumentation and early experiments in the E1 Experimental Hall for Applications in Molecular, Biomedical and Materials Sciences. The user assisted commissioning and early experiments will take place between February and August 2019.

A user dedicated website was launched to provide all needed information to users including beamtime allocation, available laser and secondary sources and their parameters, experimental instrumentation as well as description of the proposal evaluation process.

For more information and details of the call for USER-ASSISTED COMMISSIONING of EXPERIMENTAL STATIONS in the E1 EXPERIMENTAL HALL of ELI BEAMLINES please refer to our User website.

The principle aim of this call is to structure a broader involvement of the international user community in the instrument commissioning and initiate user experiments. For the first user action, the ELI Beamlines Facility will make available L1 Allegra laser system providing >20 mJ / <20 fs / 1kHz and High-order harmonic generation beamline.

Users are invited to submit proposals addressing either of the four experimental stations: a) Femtosecond spectroscopy, b) MAC: Multi purpose end station for AMO science and Coherent Diffractive imaging, c) ELIps: Time resolved spectroscopic ellipsometry and VUV material science and d) TREX: Station for X-ray experiments such as diffraction, scattering, spectroscopy, imaging and pulse radiolysis.

Dedicated ELI Beamlines staff are ready to help users prepare proposals and conduct the experimental action.
