The beamlines are funded by the Flemish research council. This means that 66% of the available beam time is reserved for researchers working in Flemish institutes (who submit a CRG proposal). The remaining 33% is available for general ESRF applicants (who submit a standard ESRF proposal).

LATEST UPDATE: Proposal submission is OPEN for both DUBBLE beamlines BM26 and BM14 for the 2022 Spring proposal submission round (Deadlines March 1st for ESRF users and April 1st for DUBBLE users). However, in 2022 both beamlines will operate at 50% capacity which means only 50% of the usual amount shifts will be available. For Dutch user groups, they will be able to apply for beamtime via the ESRF proposal submission route or in collaboration with Flemish users applying via DUBBLE-CRG proposal submission route where the main proposer is affiliated to a Flemish University/Institute.

IMPORTANT: There is no Gas Rig system available at BM14, the new Spectroscopy beamline of DUBBLE.





Proposal deadlines for Flemish researchers:
1st April and 1st October

What research is performed here?

SAXS-WAXS-samplechanger-700px.png The SAXS/WAXS beamline is largely devoted to soft condensed matter research, although scientists from many other research fields (geology, mineralogy, metallurgy, etc.) are also regular visitors


ExafsSaxsWaxs-0008.jpg (Exafs-Saxs-Waxs setup (1)) The XAFS beamline is specialised in on-line catalysis experiments but recent publications include: work on strained and relaxed CVD grown epitaxial Ge1-xSnx films, a study during cycling of Li2FeSiO4 and Li2.2Fe0.9SiO4 Li ion battery materials and a paper entitled "Co-rich ZnCoO nanoparticles embedded in wurtzite Zn1-xCoxO thin films: possible origin of superconductivity".
