General User Information
The IBC user office (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the major contact point for all current or prospective users of the IBC user facilities. Please do not hesitate to contact us for support or administrative help.
The central tool to organize your access to the IBC user facilities is called HZDR GATE (general access tool to experimental infrastructures). In GATE you will find a number of web applications
- to submit proposals
- to submit experimental reports
- to provide feedback on your experience and
- to provide publications resulting from your experiments
Note: Several of the IBC user facilities are located within a radiation protection area. For safety reasons, access to radiation protection areas is denied to minors and pregnant or breastfeeding women. Please consider this when planning your experiments and discuss possible issues well beforehand with your respective local contact.
Routine measurement operation of accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) has restarted at the IBC and new AMS proposals can be submitted again. The new division “Accelerator Mass Spectrometry and Isotope Research” at the HZDR / Institute of Beam Physics and Materials Research was successfully established and is now headed by Prof. Dr. Anton Wallner.
Committee Research on Condensed Matter with Nuclear Probes and Ion Beams
HZDR would like to let you know about the work of the "Committee Research on Condensed Matter with Nuclear Probes and Ion Beams" (KFSI). KFSI is an elected body representing the interests of ion beam users in Germany to politics and facilities. If you work with Ion Beams in Germany, you can register with KFSI as a user and vote for the new comittee in 2021.
