NE-CAT is accepting GUP proposals for the 2017-1 run cycle.  Please choose 24-ID-C or 24-ID-E as your first choice to be scheduled with NE-CAT!

The 24-ID-C beamline can deliver X-rays in the range of 6 to 21 keV or ~2.1 to 0.5 Å. This covers most of the popular elemental edges for phasing. This wide energy-range also makes the beamline well suited for ultra high-resolution data collection and soft X-ray sulfur SAD phasing. The beamline is equipped with an optional kappa goniometer for optimal alignment of crystals. A Pixel Array Detector (PAD), Pilatus-6MF, installed on the 24-ID-C beamline helps measure very weak Bragg reflection intensities due to its noise-less readout technology and also provides a very fast data collection capability in shutter-less data collection mode.

The 24-ID-E beamline is a fixed energy microdiffraction beamline delivering X-rays at 12.66 keV, optimized for Se-SAD experiments. It is equipped with a CCD-based ADSC Quantum 315 detector.

Both beamlines are equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation to handle advanced data collection methods. MD2 microdiffractometers installed at both beamlines provide very clean beams from 5 microns to 100 microns in diameter and have exceptional sample visualization systems capable of visualizing micron-sized crystals with extreme clarity.

Deadline Friday, October 28, 2016 for:
   - New General User Proposals (GUPs)
   - New Beam Time Requests for APS run 2017-1  (1/31/2017 - 4/24/2017) on existing active proposals
   - Partner user proposals (PUPs)
   - CAT Member Proposals
   - APS Beamline Staff Proposals
   - CAT Beamline Staff Proposals

The GUP system (https://beam.aps.anl.gov/pls/apsweb/gup0005.start_page)  will accept proposals and beam time requests until 11:59 pm (Chicago time) on October 28, 2016. However, User Office support will not be available after 5:00 pm that day. If you feel you may need help during the submission process, please create your proposal as early as possible.

For questions about the GUP system or the proposal submission process, please contact gu_program at aps.anl.gov<mailto:gu_program at aps.anl.gov>.
