Operations Schedule

We have experienced a failure of the electron gun and as a result have to cancel all user shifts until November 16, 2018. The staff are employing all available resources to get the machine back up and running as soon as possible.

The call for proposals for Cycle 29 (January to June 2019) has been cancelled. All projects that have had shifts cancelled due to this outage will have the same number of shifts scheduled during our next cycle.

We are sorry for the loss of beamtime and its impact on your research projects. If you have any questions or concerns about your beamtime, please contact the CLS User Services Office at clsuo@lightsource.ca or 1-306-657-3700.
