FERMI Call For Proposals

This is the Ninth Call for users experiments at the FERMI facility at Elettra - Sincrotrone Trieste.
Before preparing your proposal, please carefully check the following information.
In particular, concerning the photon-beam parameters, kindly check the tables available at the address: http://www.elettra.eu/lightsources/fermi.html
Please note that, during the next run, the delay line to be used for FEL pump-FEL probe experiments will not be available. 
If you need more information about the FEL properties, or about the single and two-colour FEL schemes available at FERMI, please send a message to the email address: fermi.usersupport@elettra.eu.

The next deadline is June 17th, 2019 h.: 23:59 (MET)


Available FERMI Beamlines

DiProI Magnedyn


Available laser laboratories


Proposals that require 3 to 6 shifts with FEL standard configurations (see below) will be given priority to be scheduled.
Standard configurations:

  1. Rep Rate will be 50 Hz up to 250 eV photon energy and 10 Hz above
  2. FEL will be always producing a single color. 
  3. Wavelength/energy per pulse in the nominal range (for more information click here).
  4. User Laser Energy E and time duration Δt per pulse: @795 nm (E=1500 μJ Δt=70 fs), @397 nm (E=400μJ Δt=90 fs), @265 nm (E=50μJ Δt=120 fs)

For these proposals no additional user equipment will be installed on the end-stations.

On-line submission using the Virtual Users Office (VUO) at the following URL: https://vuo.elettra.eu/.

EU Support
