User Club

The ILL User Club provides online access to all the information and administrative tools for our scientific visitors, presented in a user friendly environment.

EASY - Easy Access System

The Easy Access SYstem (EASY) grants diffraction beamtime to scientists from ILL member countries, who need a rapid structural characterisation of samples and data analysis. Access is open all year long, and it is not necessary to go through the ILL standard proposal round and consequent peer review system.

The system offers one neutron day per cycle, on two instruments (D16 and D2B) to perform very short experiments (a maximum of 4h per cycle) at room temperature. The users will not be  invited to the ILL, but will send their samples to one of two designated ILL scientists (one for powder and one for single-crystal experiments), who will be responsible for the measurements and sample radiological control. The ILL will ship back the sample once the measurement is finished.  
You can apply for EASY beamtime on the Visitors Club web-site.
