Macromolecular Crystallography Program at SSRL

September 30, 2014 marked the end of operations of the NSLS. While NSLS-II beam lines are being constructed and commissioned we plan to support users at the SSRL.

For FY16 all active NSLS proposals can request beam time on beam line 14-1 at SSRL without the need for submitting a new proposal.  The SSRL operates between November and August. SSRL supports remote access; if this is the mode of your choice please let us know in the comment line in your beam time request.  

To request beam time at SSRL, you will need to register as an SSRL user at:
