We are pleased to announce the next call for proposals for the Swiss spallation neutron source SINQ at PSI!

The next DEADLINE for the submission of beam time requests for SINQ<https://www.psi.ch/en/sinq> will be:

   *********  May 15, 2021, midnight, C.E.S.T.   *********

This call will be open for the following instruments:

Powder Diffractometer                     : HRPT

Single Crystal Diffractometer           : ZEBRA

Strain Scanner                                 : POLDI

Small Angle Scattering                     : SANS-I

Triple-Axis Spectrometers                : TASP, CAMEA, EIGER

Time-of-Flight Spectrometer            : FOCUS

Neutron Imaging                               : NEUTRA, ICON

Please note:

  *   The triple-axis spectrometer CAMEA is open for new proposals and partly available for user operation in cycle II-21.
  *   The powder diffractometer DMC and the reflectometer AMOR are undergoing major upgrades and thereafter the respective commissioning phase. DMC might be available for expert friendly users later in 2021.
  *   Within the partnership between PSI and the LLB/FR and until the new SANS-LLB facility at SINQ is available for user operation a certain amount of beamtime on the instrument SANS-I will be reserved for proposals with an author/co-author from the LLB.
  *   The Neutron Microscope can be chosen as experimental setup option on POLDI and ICON.



Herewith we call for proposals for the beam time period II-21 between September and December 2021.



New users are kindly asked to contact the instrument responsibles before submitting a proposal to discuss instrumental options and reasonable beam time requests.

Please make use of the option to link related previous proposals with their experimental reports to the new one. A proper mention of previous results will provide a certain 'bonus' during the evaluation process.

Guidelines for the proposal submission and further useful information can be found on the SINQ webpages:




Further detailed information about the SINQ instruments can be obtained here:


The feasibility of complex experiments should always be discussed in advance with the instrument and sample environment responsibles.



Proposals can only be submitted electronically via the PSI Digital User Office 'DUO': https://duo.psi.ch
