User Guide

All users who come on-site must read this User Orientation and Safety Training Guide and score 100% on the Online User Exam that follows, before any work at CHESS can begin.

Submit a proposal, apply for beamtime, take the User Online Exam, submit annual report.

This page details the information needed to ship samples or equipment to CHESS. Please note that we cannot adjust beam time if your materials do not arrive in time.

 Watch the CHESS Town Hall on remote operations.

The CHESS New User Guide is a step-by-step guide to help you to apply for beamtime, how to get ready for your experiment, what to do when you get here and how to report when you leave.
