May 15, 2009 is the deadline for the July-August Rapid Access Proposal
cycle.  Please note that the ALS will be shut down in September, 2009.
The deadline for applications of beamtime on the BCSB beamlines in the
ALS is today!

Other notable features include:

    * A high-accuracy microdiffractometer on BL 8.2.1 allows for
centering and viewing of very small crystals;
    * Robot automounters on BL8.2.1 and 8.2.2 are now fully commissioned.
    * A new large format (315mm active surface area) CCD detector on
BL 8.2.1 facilitates data collection on large unit cell crystals.
    * Beamlines 5.0.1 and 5.0.3 now generate 1.5x1011 photons per
second at 0.97 Angstrom. This wavelength is slightly above the Se K
edge making them ideal for performing Se SAD experiments.
    * Beamline 5.0.2 (a tunable beamline) generates a peak flux of
8x1011 photons per second, and the energy range of 5.0.2 has been
extended to 17 keV, enabling the routine use of shorter wavelengths
and anomalously scattering elements such as bromine.

All  beamlines of the BCSB (5.0.1, 5.0.2, 5.0.3, 8.2.1 and 8.2.2) can
all be operated remotely. Please contact Peter Zwart (sector 5
beamlines) or Corie Ralston (sector 8 beamlines) for more information.

and its beamlines.

We invite you to submit a proposal at:

If you'd like to apply for October-November-December beamtime at the
Advanced Light Source, please submit a General User proposal by August
15, 2009.

If you have any questions or would like to request open beamtime,
please e-mail BCSBBeamtime at lbl.gov.

Please note that executed user agreements must be received by LBNL
prior to beamtime.  Proprietary fees, if applicable, must be received
by LBNL at least five working days prior to scheduled beamtime.
