Experiment proposal


To perform an experiment at GANIL, a proposal has to be submitted to the Program Advisory Committee for the Interdisciplinary Research at GANIL (iPAC).

The proposal has to include the proposal for experiment form and a description of the experiment including physics motivations, references, as well as technical details of the experiment demonstrating its feasibility.

It is strongly recommended to contact one of the CIMAP-CIRIL researchers before submitting your proposal.

Each proposal will be evaluated scientifically by two external experts and technically by facility staff. The IPAC committee will make its decision based on their reports and based on a comparison between the available and requested total amount of beamtime. Accumulation of an undue backlog of beamtime will be avoided. The evaluation will rely only on the written proposal.

The experiment


Before the experiment

Each experiment approved by the Committee is supported by a contact physicist and a technician from the CIMAP laboratory.

Before the experiment, the beam coordinator contacts the spokesperson to establish the beam schedule.

When the experiment is scheduled, some extra-forms may be filled:

- A technical information form for the machine indicating your beam request (to be returned)

- An information form accompanied by medical certificates

If you have some special requests for your experiment (computer connection, vacuum, mechanical…), please contact your contact physicist before your arrival.

You have the possibility to obtain a bedroom at the "maison d'hôtes" at GANIL. Please, contact the GANIL at the following phone number: +33 (0) 2 31 45 46 37 (you have to indicate your experiment number).


During the experiment

When you arrive at GANIL, your access card to the experimental area, your active dosimeter and eventually your bedroom key should be obtained at the GANIL welcome desk.


After the experiment

Return your access card, your dosimeter and, if necessary, pay your accommodation fees.

Your materials, your samples and your targets must be controlled by the Radiation Safety Department (Service de Radioprotection) before leaving the GANIL.

The submission of this proposal implies that you accept to include the following sentence in your publications on the results obtained at GANIL: « experiment performed at Grand Accélérateur National d’Ions Lourds (GANIL)  by means of CIRIL Interdisciplinary Platform, part of CIMAP laboratory, Caen, France» and to acknowledge the persons who contributed to the success of this experiment.
Don't forget to send a pre-print to the CIRIL.
