|Proposal Deadline: Wednesday, October 5, 2016 11:59 a.m. (EDT)|
This call is for experiments anticipated to run January through June 2017.
- Please note that ORCiD registration is requested when you fill out your IPTS Profile. Please add your ORCID iD to your profile now.
- Our current schedule calls for reduced time available in this cycle at the SNS due to an extended maintenance outage that will begin at the end of March 2017. Read more about the extended outage in the July issue of ORNL Neutron Times: “4-Month SNS Outage in 2017 will Lead to Major Improvements.”
- HFIR will have four cycles scheduled during this experimental period. Please see articles on these changes in the July issue of ORNL Neutron Times.
- You may request Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS) characterization time as part of your neutron proposal.
Specific information on this call and each of the instruments available during this experimental period is included on the ORNL Neutron Sciences website.
Proposals will be reviewed for feasibility, safety, and potential for high impact science. Users for approved projects must complete access and training requirements prior to beginning experiments.

JCNS offers world-class instrumentation for research with neutron in the best neutron sources worldwide, FRM II, ILL and SNS.
MLZ encourages users from German institutions to apply for beam time at the JCNS instruments at ILL and SNS.
|Deadline for proposal submission: October 5th, 2016.|
Accepted proposals will be invited for experiments in the first half of 2017.
Please submit your proposals as follows:
Proposals can be submitted via the ILL Visitor Club where you will find the following links in the PROPOSAL page
- CRG Proposal submission IN12
- CRG Proposal submission IN22
- CRG Proposal submission D23
Proposals can be submitted via the online IPTS available at the SNS where you have to select PARTNER BEAM TIME in the proposal form. The following JCNS instruments are available through the current proposal round
- BASIS (partner beam time)
- POWGEN (partner beam time)
- SNS-NSE (partner beam time)
Proposal rejected for the JCNS beam time will have the chance to compete for the SNS beam time. If you are new to SNS please register as a new member at here which will give you access to the IPTS proposal system.
In order to be considered for the present call, at least one member of the proposal team has to be working at a German institution apart from JCNS. If your proposed experiment needs any sample environment, you are kindly asked to fill also the sample environment part of the proposal form. Please do not describe the sample conditions only in the 2-page pdf file. The review of the proposals will take approximately 4 weeks.
To ensure the feasibility of the proposed experiment please contact the instrument scientist well in advance. Please find all detailed information at the following pages:
