The beamline is funded by the Dutch and Flemish research councils, which means that 70% of the available beam time is reserved for researchers working in Dutch or Flemish institutes (who submit a CRG proposal). The remaining 30% is available for general ESRF applicants (who submit a standard ESRF proposal).
It is a common occurrence that researchers apply via the wrong route

|The SAXS/WAXS beam line|
|is largely devoted to soft condensed matter research, although scientists from many other research fields (geology, mineralogy, metallurgy, etc.) are also regular visitors|

|The XAFS beam line|
|is specialised in on-line catalysis experiments but recent publications include: work on strained and relaxed CVD grown epitaxial Ge1-xSnx films, a study during cycling of Li2FeSiO4 and Li2.2Fe0.9SiO4 Li ion battery materials and a paper entitled "Co-rich ZnCoO nanoparticles embedded in wurtzite Zn1-xCoxO thin films: possible origin of superconductivity".|

Dr. Bera has recently joined DUBBLE-CRG group as a beamline scientist for the SAXS/WAXS station (BM26B). Before joining DUBBLE he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at Argonne National Laboratory, University of Illinois at Chicago and University of Chicago, USA.Read more...
The DUBBLE beam lines have had another productive year with 100 peer reviewed publications incorporating DUBBLE data. This corresponds to roughly one paper for every three days’ beam time, a very satisfactory rate of return, reflecting the fact that the DUBBLE beam...Read more...
