User time obtained through this mechanism is via the CLS competitive peer review process, emphasizing the excellence of science where there is intent to publish scientific results.
To be eligible to apply for Canadian Access to the APS, the spokesperson must be affiliated with a Canadian university or college and have a CLS Institutional Agreement in place. If the spokesperson is a student or postdoctoral fellow, their Scientific Project Leader must be affiliated with a Canadian university or college.
Users are responsible for requesting beamtime following the CLS Call for Proposals and abiding to all APS policies and procedures associated with participating in an experiment.
Beam Time Allocation & Scheduling
Prerequisite for applying for shifts at the APS is submitting a CLS Proposal to the CLS during its Call for Proposals.
The allocation and scheduling of shifts is managed by the CLS@APS staff. Beamtime requests are prioritized each cycle based on peer review scores. The CLS@APS staff will also take into consideration scientific productivity as indicated by publications resulting from previous beamtime allocated at the APS via the CLS.
Submitting a CLS@APS General User Proposal
- Contact CLS@APS staff to discuss your research
- Submit a proposal to CLS through the User Portal
- Select CLS-APS or CLS-APS-Other from the options under Facility. Please note that successful proposals are valid by default for 2 years (6 APS cycles).
- Request shifts against your active CLS@APS proposal:
- After you are awarded beamtime
- Complete requirements for APS access - APS User Checklist
- Enter PUP 57398 as your proposal number when completing the Experiment Safety Assessment Form (ESAF).
- Arrange for delivery and return of samples/materials. Note: After your experiment, it may be easier to get your samples through Canadian customs if you include a Certificate of Origin and Export Control documentation/commercial invoice.
- After you have completed your experiment:
