FERMI Call For Proposals

The thirteenth call for user experiments at the FERMI FEL-2 free-electron laser facility, TeraFERMI, CITIUS and T-ReX laboratories, located at Elettra - Sincrotrone Trieste S.C.p.A., is now open.

Please note that the FERMI FEL-1 facility is going to be upgraded and it is not available in the present Call; FEL-1 will be available again in the next Call, foreseen in May 2022.

Starting from the present call, TeraFERMI also accepts “off-line” proposals for material’s characterization with THz time domain spectroscopy in the linear regime.

Next deadline for proposals submission: November 30th, 2021 (h. 23:59 CET).
