Welcome to the iThemba LABS SSC Beam Time Application Website.

This website is now closed for the submission of proposals.

The PAC Meeting dates are 5 – 7 November 2018

Proposals for all experimental research facilities using beams from the SSC will be considered. Facilities and detectors available for experiments include:

  • a clinical proton and fast neutron facility for radiobiology and dosimetry research, which includes cell culturing facilities and a microscopy platform for cytogenetic and DNA repair assays,
  • a high-energy quasi-monoenergetic neutron beam facility,
  • AFRODITE, an array of Compton-suppressed Clover detectors
  • ALBA, an array of large-volume LaBr3:Ce detectors,
  • the K600 QDD magnetic spectrometer,
  • a fast-timing array with 8 small-volume LaBr3:Ce detectors,
  • a Compton suppressed segmented Clover detector,
  • an electron spectrometer,
  • a tape station facility,
  • a DSAM setup,
  • a 1.5m scattering chamber,
  • and several auxiliary particle detectors e.g. silicon, CsI, and neutron wall.

 

The PAC secretary will be able to put the spokespersons in contact with the responsible scientist of each facility to obtain the necessary details for proposal preparation.
