Synchrotron research - the call for proposal is open

Synchrotron research - the call for proposal is open

If you like to conduct groundbreaking research or verify if synchrotron can shed new light on your scientific work, we invite you to apply for SOLARIS beamlines or a cryo-microscope. We`ve just opened the next, fifth call for proposals. Deadline is April, 8th.

From this call, we increase beamtime availability to meet scientists' expectations. Users will be able to use synchrotron radiation from Tuesday to Saturday (one day more per week). Beamtime will be split into three shifts (8:00-16:00, 16:00-24:00, 24:00-08:00). 

If you are not sure,whether your experiment is feasible, or you are a new user and you have questions about how to prepare the sample, we recommend phone contact with beamline scientists:

  • the UARPES beamline – dr Natalia Olszowska, phone, +48 12 664 41 72 or Marcin Rosmus, phone: +48 12 664 41 26,
  • the PEEM/XAS beamline – dr Marcin Zając, phone, +48 12 664 41 59 (end-station XAS) lub dr Tomasz Giela, phone: +48 12 664 41 35 (end-station PEEM)
  • the cryo-microscope – dr Michał Rawski, phone: +48 12 664 61 06  dr inż. Paulina Indyka phone: +48 12 664 61 06, dr Sebastian Glatt, phone: +48 12 664 63 21.

However, if you have any questions on your stay in Kraków or other logistic and organizational issues, please contact the SOLARIS User`s Office, phone: +48 12 664 41 99, + 48 571 445 045.

The PEEM/XAS beamline can be used in material sciences, physics, chemistry, geosciences, and biosciences. The UARPES line, on the other hand, enables research in such areas as superconductor physics, new electronic materials, and low-dimensional materials. We also provide time on a cryo-electron microscope, which is of particular interest among structural biologists.

Access to SOLARIS is free of charge for all non-proprietary research. User groups from outside Poland may apply for a reimbursement of travel costs (thanks to CALIPSOPlus project).

The spring call is for experiments to be performed from September of the same year till February the following year.
