COVID-19 Information for Facility Users

Brookhaven Lab and NSLS-II Status

Brookhaven Lab is currently operating in Phase 2, “Expansion of Limited Operations.” The Lab is gradually bringing staff back onsite, consistent with federal, state, and local guidance. The most up-to-date details on the Lab’s status can be found on the Resumption of Operations website.

NOTE: All guests accessing the Brookhaven site are required to provide proof of vaccination or proof of exemption from the vaccine requirement from their home institution. Details.

For the September - December (2021-3) cycle, we will continue to focus on allocating remote experiments but also welcome a limited number of users on-site to support more complex, highly rated experiments that cannot be run remotely. The 2021-3 allocations have been released and the beamline staff are reaching out to users regarding the schedule. More details can be found in the guidance linked below.

Changes to Beamtime Scheduling and Allocation

COVID-19 Research Support at NSLS-II

The U.S. Department of Energy Basic Energy Sciences light sources want to ensure they are doing everything possible to enable research related to the Coronavirus pandemic. NSLS-II is offering a streamlined and expedited rapid access proposal process for groups that require beam time for projects directly related to COVID-19.


For structural biology projects, the Center for Biomolecular Structure team is supporting remote macromolecular crystallography experiments at  the AMX and FMX beamlines as well as solution scattering experiments at the LiX beamline.


The new Laboratory for Biomolecular Structure is now open for cryo electron microscopy projects.
