News

Oct 29 2020

This is to inform you that following the recent lockdown in force in France from Oct 30 to Nov. 30 ESRF has adopted new operation rules ( http://www.esrf.eu/home/news/general/content-news/general/info---second-confinement.html ) that foresee only 3 days/week for User Service Mode instead of 6.

LISA will continue to deliver beamtime to the users and, in order to comply with the new rules, the schedule has been reviewed accordingly.

Sept 15 2020

Dear LISA users

some news regarding the LISA beamline.

*** The beamline is now completely operative and we are now resuming the user program for runs 2 and 3 2020. Run 2 will be carried out completely in remote mode, whereas for run3 the rules valid in this moment foresee the possibility of hosting 1 external user.

*** Starting from this year we are collaborating with the CERIC consortium. Proposals for experiments on LISA can now be submitted also on the CERIC area in the ELETTRA VUO portal ( https://vuo.elettra.trieste.it/pls/vuo/guest.startup ). The deadline for the next submission round is next Oct 1st.

*** Applications are open for the next HERCULES 2021 school ( http://hercules-school.eu/ ) with deadline on next Oct 17th. You are all invited to encourage the young researchers of your laboratory to apply.

 

Ago 25 2020

The submission of proposals for beamtime within the ESRF quota for the first Semester 2021 is open with deadline Sep 10th 2020. More info at the page http://www.esrf.fr/UsersAndScience/UserGuide/Applying .
Proposals can be submitted at the ESRF user portal

*** News from the beamline
LISA is now in full operation and she is profiting from the opportunities offered by the new EBS ring. Due to the smaller source, the focused beam size is now about 50 * 90 um^2 with the same intensity as before. We are now restarting the user program although with the limitations of the COVID-19 prevention rules.

LISA is now part of the beamline portfolio of CERIC and proposals can be submitted also in this quota. To apply, use the section "Submit a new CERIC proposal" in the ELETTRA-VUO ( https://vuo.elettra.trieste.it/ ). Similarly to ESRF, users applying via the CERIC quota can receive support for travel and accomodation. The next deadline is 1st October 2020.

Dear LISA users

a few announcements concerning ESRF and LISA.

* ESRF has successfully started accumulating electrons in the EBS ring and the restart of the Users Program is confirmed for next Aug 25. During the period May-July LISA will be commissioned with the new beam and she is expected to be ready to welcome the users after the summer shutdown.

* for the second semester 2020 the call for proposal is now open with a deadline on next March 2. You are warmly invited to submit proposals to the ESRF beamtime quota. For the CRG quota we are refining the final details and more news will be diffused in the forthcoming weeks.

* On next July 1st one of the satellite events of the SILS meeting 2020 (Bologna June 29 - July 1) will be the "LISA users meeting". It will be an opportunity for hearing the latest news on the beamline, presenting your research and discuss with the beamline management on the future directions of this laboratory. All details can be found at the web page: https://eventi.unibo.it/sils-2020. In the "Abstracts" section you will find the template file (either poster or oral contributions can be submitted) and the session to select is "LISA users Meeting".

* the 2019 annual report is now ready and you will find it in attachment and at the usual URL: https://www.iom.cnr.it/gilda-reports
