SSRL Deadlines


SSRL encourages scientists from diverse fields to propose experiments utilizing our unique capabilities. Access to SSRL is open to the international scientific community. There is generally no cost to submit proposals or conduct experiments at SSRL. Users are responsible for their own travel expenses, and a user agreement is required. Contact SSRL scientists to discuss proposed experiments using the capabilities on SSRL beam lines.
