Apply for beamtime

At the ESRF there are three different types of beamtime access:

  • Peer-reviewed public beamtime access on ESRF and/or Collaboration Research Group (CRG) beamlines; these pages are dedicated to this type of access.

  • Peer-reviewed private CRG beamtime access on CRG beamlines only, see our CRG-dedicated pages.

  • Purchased commercial beamtime access on ESRF or CRG beamlines, see our Industry-dedicated pages.
