Call for proposals for the LNLS beamlines

Research proposals are submitted through the SAU Online portal

Submission period: September 1st to 30th, 2017.

Beamtime: First Semester, 2018.

Research proposals are submitted through the SAU Online portal.

SAU Online is also the interface for giving Feedback on infrastructure and services, to submit Experimental Reports and to update Publications that have used the LNLS beamlines.

LNLS users willing to submit/participate in a new proposal should know that Experimental Reports and published work using the LNLS beamlines are important criteria during the Proposal Review Panel. All users are asked to submit reports and update publications prior to the submission.

In order to be associated to any proposal, published work has to be checked by our librarians and beamline coordinators. This procedure takes at least a week. So, update your publications in advance.

Questions regarding the submission process are answered by the User Support Services (sau@cnpem.br).
