APS Long-Range Operations Schedule (Fiscal Year 2020)

Given the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, the APS user program is currently operational to support:

  • Mail-in/remote access work for any research involving low-risk samples and most medium-risk samples (as defined on the ESAF form), including limited in-situ research (set-up with a single beamline staff member, and ability to carry out majority of experiment remotely).

Please get in touch with the beamline contact to determine the ability of a specific beamline to support mail-in/remote access. We will post a table of available beamline capabilities as soon as possible.

The health and safety of our employees, users, students, and visitors remains our top priority. We are working to define the path to allow in-person users back on site, taking into account the dynamic public health situation. We will continue to monitor and adapt to changing conditions onsite, in the surrounding communities, in our state and nationwide
