12:00 Meeting closes


In December 2020, scientific visions for Swedish material science research at PETRA IV were presented in the three Scientific Instrument Proposals (SiPs) our community submitted, and the fourth we supported. These SiPs were positively reviewed by the international experts in DESY’s SIP review panel.

One next step is to put our community’s needs for infrastructure at PETRA IV onto the agenda of the Swedish Research Council, which we can do via VR’s coming call to update the inventory. The call will open in Sept and the deadline is 6 Oct.

A key aspect of the inventory proposal is our shared scientific visions for research defined in the SiPs. The proposal also needs an implementation plan. That implementation plan needs to take into consideration:

  • The Swedish Scientific Instrument Proposals (SiPs) for PETRA IV will require different high energy beamlines
  • DESY’s is proposing five high energy beamlines, and its PETRA IV project is refining its plans for their design, construction and commissioning.

There are several possible scenarios for implementation. CeXS consider it important that there is a community appraisal of these possible scenarios. Hence this briefing.
