FELIX Beamtime application
Research proposals should be submitted in a 'standard format' (see end of this page). The facility management will complement each proposal with comments on the feasibility of the required FELIX/FELICE performance, the beam time needed, and other operational aspects. A Programme Advisory Committee convenes two times per year to review requests for beam time, with the aim to set up a priority rating. The rating will be translated into an operation schedule by the facility management. Users requesting a substantial amount of beam time may be asked to give an oral presentation of their plans to the PAC.
Due to the relocation of the FELIX facility to the Radboud University of Nijmegen there is
no call for proposals in 2012.
The next call for proposals is expected for the period 1 September 2013 - 28 February 2014. Please see this website for updates.
Proposals should preferably be sent by e-mail. If further information is required, you are invited to contact the facility manager.
Programme Advisory Committee
A Programme Advisory Committee (PAC) advises the FELIX management in the allocation of beam time. The PAC was installed in the spring of 1993. In view of a formal agreement with the EPSRC, involving the use of 20% of the beam by researchers from the UK, the PAC includes a UK representative. Note that proposals from all countries, including the UK, will be subject to the judgement of the PAC. The present members are:
|M. Helm (chairman)||University of Dresden / Forschungszentrum Dresden, Germany||FEL Physics and Solid State Physics|
|A.J.R. Heck||University of Utrecht||Biomolecular Research, Mass Spectrometry|
|H. Bakker||AMOLF, and University of Amsterdam||Ultrafast vibrational dynamics|
|W.J. van der Zande||Radboud University Nijmegen||THz spectroscopy|
|P. Maître||Universite Paris-Sud, Orsay, France||Molecular physics|
|A. Krier||Lancaster University/ EPSRC, Great Britain||Solid state physics|
