User access

As a user facility we regularly perform measurements for external users—national, EU+, and international. Free access is available via several funding instruments, some of which are funded externally and are limited for their respective funding periods. The latter usually have additional benefits, such as travel support (e.g. RADIATE, Chetec-INFRA).

Samples for 10Be and 26Al and many other isotopes may be prepared at HZDR from pre-treated samples. Experienced users with their own laboratory capabilities can also submit fully prepared samples, subject to prior discussion of the specific requirements. We offer in-house training for sample preparation in our chemistry labs. So far, we have had over 100 visitors using our sample preparation facilities and analysing their samples, many of them returning.

We routinely measure 7Be, 10Be, 26Al, 36Cl, 41Ca, 55Fe and 129I at our 6 MV tandem accelerator. Additional radioisotopes are being added with the implementation of our new 1 MV compact multi-isotope system that is equipped with a laser photo-detachment beam-line for isobar separation (to be commissioned in July 2023). Note that we currently do not offer radiocarbon (14C) dating.

Currently we have three different funding instruments for access, all of which require a short (usually 2 page) application via our GATE proposal submission system. The review process for all of them is (currently) rolling, meaning proposals can be submitted effective at any point in time. For further questions contact Prof. Dr. A. Wallner

IBC General Access

We offer general access to all users via the IBC platform. These grants only cover the AMS measurement. A guide to submitting a proposal can be found here (pdf). Applications are submitted via GATE.

Logo: RADIATE

RADIATE

Radiate offers access to a number of ion beam research platforms, including our DREAMS facility at HZDR. These grants come with limited travel funding, covering travel for the beam-time to an amount typical for intra-EU travel. For AMS there is a special application form (docx). This is a trans-national access (TNA) program – it is a requirement that the applicant and the majority of co-applicants are located outside the country where the facility is located. A limit of 20% of non-EU (or associated) grant-holders applies. Applications are submitted via GATE.

Logo: Chetec

Chetec-INFRA

Nuclear astrophysics based AMS projects related to the study of the origin of the elements can get access to the DREAMS facility via the Chetec-INFRA. This is a trans-national access (TNA) program – it is a requirement that the applicant and the majority of co-applicants are located outside the country where the facility is located. A limit of 20% of non-EU (or associated) grant-holders applies. Applications are submitted via GATE.
