Applying for beamtime

The beamtime is split into two 6-months allocation periods corresponding to spring and autumn calls for proposals.
The spring call (deadline for proposal submission: 1st of April) is for experiments to be performed from September of the same year till February the following year.
The autumn call (deadline for proposal submission: 1st of October) is for experiments to be performed from March till August of the following year.

The next call for proposals starts in September and ends on October 1st, 2019.

Beamtime applications are submitted through the user portal Digital User Office (DUO).

We strongly recommend discussing the feasibility of planned experiments with the responsible beamline scientist prior to the submission of a proposal, in particular, if you are a new user.
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).

Beamtime availability

Beamtime is allocated in shifts of 8 hours. Shift timings are from 08:00 to 16:00 and from 16:30 to 24:30. The maximum duration of the experiment cannot exceed one week which nominally corresponds to 8 shifts.
Two injections per day are planned as a standard (at 7:00 and 16:00), each takes approximately half an hour.
No injections are planned between 16:30 and 7:00, but the beam is available for experiments. Currently, operators' support is guaranteed between 7:00 and 22:00.
The yearly operation calendar details can be found on Operation schedule page.
The SOLARIS staff members are available to assist you in setting up experiments during normal working hours. Remember that you cannot start your experiment before the meeting with the beamline manager. SOLARIS infrastructure is available for users 24/7.
