PROPRIETARY RESEARCH

Proprietary access is straight-forward, paid for and confidential and by far the most popular amongst our industrial users.  We tailor your experiment to your specific needs and contribute making your business more competitive on global markets. If you need it, we can rapidly establish Non-Disclosure Agreement. Shall we talk? 

Full service

Not familiar with a synchrotron? Do you think you can benefit from it but don’t know how to proceed? Let us take charge of your experiment, from A to Z. You just give us the sample and tell us what you want: we’ll do the rest. Either send the sample or bring it yourself and discover how we do science here.

Mail-in 

A routine measurement? Send us the samples, we do the experiments, and you get the data. A good solution for those who need measurements and who are familiar dealing with data. We can also help you with the data if you prefer. We can also do much more complex data analysis, contact us for a tailored quotation to meet your needs.

On-site access

Travel to the ESRF, bring your samples and carry out your experiment. You will benefit from the support of our international and highly qualified team. After the time here return home and work on the data with advice from our scientists.

Remote access

Send us the samples, log in to the ESRF system and you run the experiment and acquire the data remotely from the comfort of your office. At the moment this only applies for experiments in macromolecular crystallography.

  

PEER REVIEWED RESEARCH

If you are intending to publish your results and are planning to carry out the experiments yourself, you could also consider applying through our peer review programme. This route is slower than proprietary access, but is free of access charges. The BDO team can help you with all aspects of the application process and even potential collaborations, just contact us. If you are an experienced pro and are ready to complete the procedure, go to the user portal

Collaborations

If you want to establish a longer-term relationship with the ESRF, there is the possibility of sponsoring PhD studentships or post-doctoral researchers, or even ESRF hosting your staff, which would work on a specific subject for several years. See more here.
