CHESS is accepting beamtime requests (BTR) for the January to March 2020 cycle. In order to submit a BTR, users must have an active beamtime proposal, i.e. a proposal submitted to CHESS within the past two years.
To submit a BRT, please log on to the CHESS User Portal
- On your home page in the CHESS User Portal, under “Working Beamtime Requests”, select “Start new beamtime request”.
- On the page that opens up, select the project/proposal from the drop-down menu that you want to request beamtime for.
If no proposals are listed, you do not have any active proposals that you could request beamtime for.
- Follow the instructions on the subsequent pages and provide the relevant information. Note that information from your previously submitted proposal is copied to your beamtime request where possible.
BTRs may be submitted at any time. However, to be scheduled in January to March 2020 cycle, a BTR must be received by Wednesday, November 27th.
For questions about the BTR submission process, please contact the CHESS user office at email@example.com.
