General Information
For detailed user information please refer to SESAME User Guide.

Proposals
Proposers interested in an experiment at XAFS/XRF beamline are strongly encouraged to contact the beamline scientist prior to submitting a proposal. Proposals have to be submitted using the SESAME Users Office (SUO) system. 

Beamline Schedule
You can access the current XAFS/XR schedule in the SESAME Operation Calendar.

Preparing your beamtime
General information on things that should be organized in advance of beamtime is given at SESAME User Office - Before Arrival. 

SESAME User Office - Before Arrival 
It is recommended that the proposer contacts the relevant beamline scientist to obtain any information required for preparing his/her experiment prior to the beamtime. He/she should first carefully check this website to see what is available at his/her endstation of interest. 

It is important that the forthcoming user has checked with the beamline scientist the following considerations: 

1. Desired photon energy? 
3. What detector type is desired (Fluorescence, Transmission),
4. What sample environment is needed (temperature, pressure, gases, etc)? 
5. Sample mounting possibilities and constraints? 

Setting up an experiment is, in general, performed as part of the allocated beamtime, in other words, it is not expected that the previous user finishes early in order to allow the next user to prepare the experiment in advance. Under favorable circumstances, it may be possible to complete some part of setting up in the experimental hutch in advance. This depends on whether the hutch is being used by another user immediately prior to one's beamtime. Check with your local contact. 

Importing experimental equipment
It is strongly recommended that the user ensures that all necessary preparations have been made for the import of any equipment that needs to be checked through Jordanian Customs. Failure to do this can lead to substantial delays and possible loss of some or all of the allocated beamtime.
