COVID-19 update #1: User operation suspended

Tue, 03/17/2020

Due to the corona virus crisis, the BNC Management had to change the reactor schedule. Starting from 23 March the BNC user operation will be suspended until further notice. The present reactor cycle will end on Friday 14:00 to be followed by a reactor downtime at least until 11 May. The spring beam time proposal submission deadline is postponed.
The exact date will be announced in due time. It is impossible to predict at present, when the normal operation can be resumed. Activities around the reactor in the meantime will be restricted to safety and emergency maintenance. We thank for your understanding and hope to welcome you at BNC once these difficult times are over. We will keep you informed during the coming weeks. With urgent matters please contact the BNC User Office.
