INDUSTRY USER BEAMTIME APPLICATION PROCEDURE



1. Prior to booking a beamtime using Indus webportal, kindly discuss your proposal and experiment feasibility with the beamline scientist and get his/her approval and budgetary estimate. (for contact details please click here)

2. Once feasibility of the said experiments is confirmed, user is requested to book for beamtime through the Indus webportal ( click here for online beamtime application)

3. The beamline scientist will confirm the dates for the experiments through the webportal and the user will get email alerts as well

4. After the confirmation of the date, please check with beamline scientist about user entry pass for visiting the Indus beamlines

5. User can now visit RRCAT for the period of approved dates At RRCAT guard house office, the user will get entry pass for visiting the Indus beamline. (click here for entry guidelines)

User is requested to go to user office (Room no.1, Indus-2) located at Indus building. He/she has to then undergo a short training about radiation safety.

7. After the radiation training, a suitable badge for radiation monitoring will be issued to the user , which he/she has to wear while working on beamline

8. User can then proceed to the specific beamline for the planned experiment

9. After the completion of the experiment a document stating the actual hours for the experiment, will be prepared and approved by both the beamline scientist and the user. Based on this, an invoice will be prepared and given to the user

10. The user will be required to transfer the amount to RRCAT account, and the data will be handed over to the user in a mutually agreed format. Project closure report to be completed by the user
