For NSCL Users

  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. *Note*: NSCL is currently running experiments at ReA3 and ReA6 using stable and long-lived radioactive ion beams. The last PAC meeting for NSCL was held on March 3-4, 2020. Users may still request discretionary and paid beam time experiments (see below), but beam time is very limited.

  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.
