Beam Time Requests for the BT-1 High Resolution Neutron Powder Diffractometer

Beam time requests for use of the BT-1 high resolution diffractometer will be accepted each facility cycle. The deadline for requests that are submitted through the Web via the NCNR proposal system will be approximately two weeks prior to the start of each operating cycle. Requests submitted via this expedited system will be reviewed within the NIST Center for Neutron Research before time for the next cycle is scheduled.

If the request is accepted, we will attempt to schedule beam time in the cycle following its submission, provided that sufficient time is available and the participants prefer rapid scheduling. The system allows researchers to access the BT-1 facility as quickly as 2 to 7 weeks after the deadline, approximately every two months.
