For NSCL Users
NSCL and FRIB welcome researchers from universities, government labs, and industry who are interested in performing experiments. There are three ways to obtain beam time at NSCL:
1. Submit a proposal during the Call for Proposal period for review by the Program Advisory Committee (PAC). A Call for Proposals is issued approximately every 6-12 months. The majority of beam time granted at NSCL is approved by the PAC.
2. Write a letter to the director for discretionary beam time. Examples of discretionary experiments include commissioning of new devices and very high impact scientific experiments.
3. Pay for beam time. Approximately 5% of accelerator time is available for purchase. Contact the Manager for User Relations for this procedure.
We strive to provide excellent support for every aspect of your experiment — prior to, during, and following your work at our facility. We invite you to contact the Manager for User Relations, with any questions or requests that you might have.
