In order to contribute to the research on the corona virus SARS-CoV-2, JCNS has decided to offer its instruments via a special proposal round with privileged access, giving them priority over all other applications for beam time. To this respect, regular proposal rounds (next Deadline March 27, 2020) would imply too long waiting to access the JCNS instruments, and therefore all interested scientists are kindly invited to submit their experiment proposal to the JCNS User Office per email (useroffice@mlz-garching.de) without any pre-defined template and without any deadline. Submitted proposals will be assessed as soon as possible to ensure access to the instrument during the next reactor cycle planned between May 5th and Jun 03rd, 2020.

Europe’s advanced neutron sources will make an essential contribution to the fight against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
