[ccp4bb] Call for MX beamtime proposals at HZB, BESSY II, deadline March 01, 2018




Next MX-proposal application deadline: March 01, 2018 is approaching
http://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/user/beamtime/proposals/index_en.html

Hereby we would like to invite the submission of new proposals for
MX-beamtime at the HZB-MX beamlines for the next beam time period
(08/2018-01/2019).

In order to apply for beamtime, please register at the HZB on-line
access tool "GATE" (https://www.helmholtz-berlin.de/pubbin/hzbgate)
and submit a new beam time application proposal.

HZB provides MX-beamtime at the three MX-beamlines BL14.1, BL14.2
and BL14.3. The three beamlines are equipped with state-of-the-art
instrumentation and are currently the most productive MX-stations
in Germany with over 300 PDB depositions annually. Beamtime is
granted based on the reviewed proposals and on reports from
previous research activities. Please make sure to include them
if available.

What's new: Due to a planned upgrade of the experimental endstation
                        BL14.3 will not be fully available. Details can be provided
                        upon request.

Experimental setup:

BL14.1:
- Photon flux: 1.4x10¹¹ Phot/sx100mAx0.05%BW at sample position
  (0.1-1 sec exposure time per frame)
- User defined beam shaping from 50µm-100µm diameter possible
- Pilatus 6M detector, 141mm-680mm max. distance from the sample
- Microdiffractometer (MD2) with Mini-kappa goniometer MK3
- Automatic sample changer (CATS), 90 sample storage capacity
 (SPINE-Pin & EMBL sample magazine compatibility)
- 32-core XEON-CPU server, with 10Gb uplink to Pilatus 6M
- Data collection control via MXCuBE
- EDNA
- Common MX-software installed including XDS, iMOSFLM, CCP4,
