SSRL Experimental Run Schedule

SSRL User Beam Time Schedules for the 2014-2015 Run Year (November 17, 2014 - August 10, 2015)

Beam time assignments for the first scheduling period, mid November 2014 through mid February 2015, are now available. Please log in to the user portal to view and accept beam time. Due to the heavy oversubscription on many X-ray/VUV beam lines, we were only able to accommodate 340 out of 519 requests but we encourage users to resubmit X-ray/VUV beam time requests by November 20 to compete for beam time in the second scheduling period, mid February through mid May 2015.  Macromolecular Crystallography beam time requests for March through May are due by January 21.

Beam time shifts with the "low alpha" operating mode are scheduled periodically. During these low alpha shifts, SSRL will operate with reduced current in the 100 mA range and top off will be less frequent depending on user requirements, anticipated every 20 minutes rather than every 5 minutes.

In FY 2015, "low alpha" modes are planned:

  • 0600 Friday, February 6, 2015 through 0600 Monday, February 9, 2015
  • 0600 Friday, April 17, 2015 through 0600 Monday, April 20, 2015
  • 0600 Friday, June 12, 2015 through 0600 Monday, June 15, 2015
