Fri Dec 14 16:39:22 CST 2007

You are invited to apply for beam time at the German neutron source 
Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II). Proposals can be submitted any time via 
our user portal http://user.frm2.tum.de. They are reviewed twice a year. 
Please register in the user office. With your personal account you can 
access the proposal and reporting system and get additional informations 
and guidance to perform experiments at the FRM II.

Deadline for proposal submission is January, 25th 2008. 

The review of the proposals will take place on 22. February 2008. 
Results of the referees will be online about two weeks later. The 
experiments of the accepted proposals will start from the 15th cycle, 
i.e. from March 2007.
The FRM II is a partner in the EU supported network of European neutron 
facilities (NMI3 in FP6). Researchers working in EU Member States or 
Associated States other than Germany can apply for travel and 
subsistence reimbursement.

To ensure the feasibility of the proposed experiment please contact the 
instrument scientist well in advance. For the following instruments 
applications can be submitted:


Heidi: single crystal diffractometer, hot source
Resi: single crystal diffractometer, thermal source
Spodi: powder diffractometer, thermal source
Stress-Spec: material-science diffractometer, thermal source
N-Rex+: reflectometer for material science, cold source
Mira: reflectometer with long wave length neutrons
--Refsans: no proposals accepted due to huge backlog--

Reseda: resonance spin-echo spectrometer, cold source
TofTof: time-of-flight spectrometer, cold source
Trisp: three-axis spectrometer with Spin-Echo, thermal source
Puma: three-axis spectrometer, thermal source
Panda: three-axis spectrometer, cold source

Positrons, Nepomuc: 
positron beam ("open beam port")
positron auger spectrometer ("PAES")
positron defect spectrometer ("Coincidence doppler broadening")
positron life time spectroscopy ("PLEPS")

Radiography and Tomography:
Antares: radiography and tomography, cold source
Nectar: radiography and tomography, fission neutron source

PGAA: prompt gamma-activation analysis

particle physics:
Mephisto: neutron beam cold source for special experiments

Details of the instruments and sample environment available can be 
obtained from our Internet site  http://www.frm2.tum.de. 

The beam time of the FRM II on the instruments of the JCNS facility 
hosted at our neutron source in Garching will be distributed through the 
JCNS proposal system at http://fzj.frm2.tum.de (next deadline is March 
14th 2008)

In addition to the beam tube experiments irradiation facilities are 
available for neutron activation analysis, isotope production and 
silicon doping. Altogether 17 irradiation channels are available for 
scientific and industrial applications.
