Dear small-angle neutron scatterers and reflectometrists!
BER-II in Berlin is still offering beam-time to the international neutron scattering community where large-scale structure investigations can be performed on the V16 SANS and the V6 reflectometer through our user coordination platform. For experiments to be performed in the first half of 2018 you can still submit your proposal until 1 Sep 2017 (see info below). Be welcome in Berlin as a part of our user programme.
Best regards, Daniel Clemens

-------- Forwarded Message --------Subject:        HZB - Call for Proposals for BESSY II and BER IIDate:   Wed, 2 Aug 2017 09:37:45 +0000From:   Vollmer, Antje <antje.vollmer@helmholtz-berlin.de><mailto:antje.vollmer@helmholtz-berlin.de>To:     Vollmer, Antje <antje.vollmer@helmholtz-berlin.de><mailto:antje.vollmer@helmholtz-berlin.de>

Dear colleagues,

The HZB user coordination kindly announces the beamtime application deadline on September 1st 2017. We invite you to submit proposals for the next proposal round 2018/I for our synchrotron facility BESSY II and our neutron facility BER II with beamtime being allocated in the first semester of 2018.

THE DEADLINE FOR PROPOSAL SUBMISSION is September 1st, 2017, 23:59 (CET):

The proposal submission will be organized with our user office system GATE https://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/pubbin/hzbgate.

You will find more information in the "Guidelines for Proposal Submission" which are available in the online help https://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/user/beamtime/guide_en.html and in the GATE-user manual<https://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/media/media/nutzerdienst/GATE/gate_usershandbook-proposal_submission.pdf>.

For details on available instruments in 2018/I, please refer to BESSY II Instruments<http://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/user/beamtime/proposals/bessy-beamlines_en.html>, BER II instruments<http://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/user/beamtime/proposals/ber-onschedule_en.html>

General information on beamtime and access to HZB is given at: https://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/user/beamtime/index_en.html.


Users of our synchrotron facility BESSY II, please find the most relevant and partially new information as summarized below:

The semester 2018/I will start on the 19th February 2018 and end on the 29th. July 2018, with  15 weeks of Multi Bunch, 2 weeks of Single Bunch, 1 week of low alpha and 1 week of Twin Orbit operation.
Please find the operation schedule online: Operation Schedule<http://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/user/user-info/beamtime-schedules/bessy2/schedules_en.html>

Beamline Up-grades and beamlines NOT in use:

Due to the implementation of BELChem, the Berlin Joint Lab for Electrochemical interfaces, together with the Max Planck Society, the UE56/2-PGM1 will not be available in the up-coming semester; the UE56/2-PGM2 remains unaffected and will be in normal user operation. More information on BELChem is given on the web page: BELChem<http://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/pubbin/news_seite?nid=14681&sprache=en&typoid=1> .

After 14 years of successful user operation EDDI will go out-of-operation in August 2018. This is the last call for proposals, which is primarily aimed at EDDI users to finish ongoing projects. Please contact Christoph Genzel Christoph.genzel@helmholtz-berlin.de<mailto:Christoph.genzel@helmholtz-berlin.de> or Manuela Klaus Manuela.klaus@helmholtz-berlin.de<mailto:Manuela.klaus@helmholtz-berlin.de> before application. Future options for EDDI users at HZB will be the subject of a satellite workshop in the framework of the HZB user meeting in December.

New beamlines and experimental stations in user operation:

The Microscopy beamline U41-TXM<http://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/pubbin/igama_output?modus=einzel&sprache=en&gid=1646&typoid=35512> is in full user service. We are looking forward to your beamtime applications. For questions, please contact Peter Guttmann (peter.guttmann@helmholtz-berlin.de<mailto:peter.guttmann@helmholtz-berlin.de> ) or the User Coordination (gate-help@helmholtz-berlin.de<mailto:gate-help@helmholtz-berlin.de>) directly.

The PEAXIS experimental station that is capable of angle-resolved RIXS and PES is currently under commissioning and will be in operation as soon as possible. It will be available only to friendly users at the moment. For more information, please refer to PEAXIS<http://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/pubbin/igama_output?modus=einzel&sprache=en&gid=2127&typoid=35517> and contact Jie Xiao jie.xiao@helmholtz-berlin.de<mailto:jie.xiao@helmholtz-berlin.de>.

The soft X-ray branch of our energy materials in-situ laboratory EMIL is still under commissioning, the tender  X-ray branch is under construction. However, it is already possible to use off-line and preparation tools within the EMIL laboratory. For details and availability, please contact the EMIL team emil@helmholtz-berlin.de<mailto:emil@helmholtz-berlin.de> and Simone Raoux simone.raoux@helmholtz-berlin.de<mailto:simone.raoux@helmholtz-berlin.de>. You can find more information on the EMIL pages<http://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/projects/emil/index_en.html>.

The new RGBL-2 insertion device beamline is still under construction, however, we expect friendly user operation towards spring 2018. If you are interested in performing your experiments at RGBL-2, please find more information here RGBL undulator<http://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/pubbin/igama_output?modus=einzel&sprache=en&gid=1964&typoid=35512> or contact Oliver Rader oliver.rader@helmholtz-berlin.de<mailto:oliver.rader@helmholtz-berlin.de> and Jaime Sánchez-Barriga Jaime.sanchez-barriga@helmholtz-berlin.de<mailto:Jaime.sanchez-barriga@helmholtz-berlin.de> directly.

If you plan to apply for an experimental station of a partner group or a BESSY II-station, please make sure to discuss the technical possibilities in advance with the corresponding station manager. Please find the contact data of your beamline scientist and/or station manager in our instrument database IGAMA: https://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/user/experimental-infrastructures/instruments-photons/index_en.html.

Twin Orbit: new operation mode of the storage ring

In calendar week 8 (19.-25. February 2018) we will have a special setting of the BESSY II storage ring generating a second stable orbit in the machine with the multibunch train in the standard orbit and the single bunch in the gap on a second orbit. It is still a test week, to learn more about the effect of the 2 orbits on beamlines and end-stations. We expect that the electron bunch fill pattern on both orbits can, to some extent, be chosen independently. If you are interested, you are cordially invited to submit a proposal for this week, which is marked in purple colour in the operation schedule.

Top-up and Radiation Safety Requirements:

Since BESSY II is operated in TOP-UP mode, radiation safety regulations forced us to install a CONTROLLED AREA in the BESSY II experimental hall. Therefore, all users have to fulfil more stringent radiation safety requirements. For details please read the Radiation Safety requirements pages:


Users of our neutron facility BER II please find the most relevant and partially new information as summarized below:

The application period for the 1st semester 2018 will start in March 2018.

A list of the instruments on schedule can be found online: https://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/user/beamtime/proposals/ber-onschedule_en.html.

Details on the instrumentation and coordinates of the instrument scientists are available on the webpages: http://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/user/experimental-infrastructures/instruments-neutrons/index_en.html.

NEAT: The instrument is still in commissioning, please contact the instrument scientist Margarita Russina (margarita.russina@helmholtz-berlin.de<mailto:margarita.russina@helmholtz-berlin.de>) before application.


General Travel Support:

We are very pleased to announce, that due to the European Project CALIPSOplus, we are able to provide support for two scientists per proposal at our photon source BESSY II.
At our neutron source BER II one scientist per experiment is eligible for the financial support from HZB.
Please find the general support regulations and the possible eligibility for funding on the following web-page: funding and support<http://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/user/user-info/travel/index_en.html>

Arrangements for travel support have to be cleared prior to undertaking the trip.

Please note the option to transfer standardized proposals submitted by the wayforlight portal for beamtime into the GATE system: http://www.wayforlight.eu/eng/home.aspx.

Beamtime fees for Proprietary Research:

Beamtime fees are collected for proprietary industrial research. Academic users can use the BESSY II / BER II services without paying any fees. The readiness to publish the scientific results within a reasonable period of time giving proper mention to the HZB is a prerequisite for the charge-free admission of external users.

In case of any question, suggestions or problems, please do not hesitate to contact us or our beamline or station scientists.

With kind regards

The HZB User Coordination
