Access for external users

Neutron Physics Laboratory (NPL) - in the frame of CANAM (Center of Accelerators and Nuclear Analytical Methods) infrastructure - offers open access to its facilities for external users.

Access to the facilities in is free of charge for national and international academic users, provided that the results from experiments at the facilities of the NPI infrastructure will be disseminated in the public domain (users from private and industry sectors can arrange purchase of the access to NPL facilities; for further information, please contact the User Office). For eligible users from EU and associated states, a support within NMI3 project can be asked for.

To apply for open access to the NPI infrastructure facilities, scientific proposals should be submitted via User Portal. At Neutron Physics Laboratory, there are no deadlines (i.e. the proposal can be submitted at any time). The proposals will undergo the review procedure by Scientific Selection Panel.

The use of the CANAM infrastructure must be properly mentioned in publications which originated from NPL experiments (for example: Measurements were carried out at the CANAM infrastructure of the NPI ASCR Rez).

  • Access programme of the NMI3 project

    nmi3_web_small7th framework of NMI3 projectNeutron Physics Laboratory of the NPI Řež (NPL) is a member of the Access activity in the frame of the Integrated Infrastructure Initiative for Neutron Scattering and Muon Spectroscopy (NMI3-II). This project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under the NMI3-II Grant number 283883. Groups coming from EU Member States and Associated States may qualify for a travel grant provided by the European Union under NMI3-II project for access to NPL instruments available for the external users.
