The Jülich Centre for Neutron Science JCNS offers access to dedicated neutron scattering instruments at:
Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) in Garching, Germany,
Institute Laue Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble, France,
Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) in Oak Ridge, USA.
In order to apply for beam time, you are invited to submit a proposal. The MLZ international panel reviews the submitted proposals twice per year, and recommends the beam time allocation on the basis of their scientific merit. JCNS offers beam time at its MLZ instruments to scientists from all over the world regardless of the country in which they are conducting their research, while beam time at the ILL and SNS instruments is provided to German affiliated users only.
The next deadline for proposal submissions is
06 May 2016
for JCNS instruments at the MLZ. Based on these calls for proposals, beam time will be allocated from October 2016.
As far as JCNS instruments at the ILL and SNS are concerned, the next deadline for proposal submissions is
04 March 2016
Based on these calls for proposals, beam time will be allocated in the second half of 2016.
Detailed information on how to get and use the beamtime at the JCNS outstations is available through this website or using the following links:
