National Synchrotron Light Source II

NSLS-II is a state-of-the-art 3 GeV electron storage ring. The facility offers scientific and industrial researchers an array of beamlines with x-ray, ultraviolet, and infrared light to enable discoveries in clean and affordable energy, high-temperature superconductivity, molecular electronics, and more. Overview »

 

The next deadline for NSLS-II beam time proposals and beam time requests is September 30, 2020.  |   Submission Details

COVID-19 Research Support

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.

Become a Facility User

Beamlines at the National Synchrotron Light Source II are open to academic and industrial users for scientific research. All research proposals are subjected to peer review and ranked against competing proposals based on scientific merit.

NSLS-II Beamlines

NSLS-II’s beamlines and experimental stations offer unique, cutting-edge research tools for a wide variety of scientific areas. All beamlines are organized into five science programs, based on the research capabilities and expertise they offer.

    NSLS-II Friday Lunchtime Seminar

    "New opportunities for IXS at the GALAXIES beamline, Synchrotron SOLEIL"

    Presented by J-P. Rueff, Synchrotron SOLEIL, France

    12 pm, Zoom Invitation

    Friday, July 24, 2020, 12:00 pm

    Hosted by: Ignace Jarrige

    The GALAXIES undulator beamline at Synchrotron SOLEIL is dedicated to inelastic x-ray scattering (IXS) and high energy photoemission (HAXPES) spectroscopy in the tender x-ray range (2.3 – 12 keV) [1]. We will present recent scientific results illustrating the capabilities of the IXS endstation at GALAXIES with an emphasis on extreme conditions [2,3] and x-ray Raman spectroscopy [4]. Ongoing instrumental developments for improved energy resolution, faster acquisition scheme and larger collection angle will be discussed. Finally, we will explore the new possibilities offered by the future SOLEIL Upgrade program. [1] Rueff et al., J.
