Synchrotron light is available for use in KIT in-house projects and projects of mutual interest. Beamtime may also be applied for proprietary projects.
The following pages procvide information how partners may conduct scientific research projects with access to the beamlines and the storage ring.
Collaborations should be arranged well before the experiment starts. The usual course of action would be to:
- address the issue,
- agree on a collaboration,
- name a local contact managing the access,
- include the local scientist(s) in the interpretation of results,
- agree and include the involved KIT scientists in the author list for publications.
We remind you that the User Coordination Office needs your cooperation in keeping track of all publications resulting from research carried at the facility and the beamlines. This can be achieved by sending an e-mail to your local contact and/or to the User Coordination Office containing details of the reference as soon as it has been published or accepted.
All visitors bringing material, including samples or equipment are advised that such equipment or material remains entirely in the responsibility of the visitors concerned.
Chemistry Laboratory / Sample Preparation
At the facility a Chemistry Laboratory for the simple preparation of samples is equipped with fume cupboards, ovens, glassware, reagents and solvents. Special experimental requirements need to be discussed with the local contact. Access to the Chemistry Laboratory is controlled via magnetic card and is applied for using the Chemistry Laboratory - Application Form. The rules and regulations for the Laboratory can be found under the link Chemistry Laboratory - Safety Regulations. Please do not hesitate to contact your local contact or the User Coordination Office for any remaining questions.
