Rapid Access Program


The LCLS Rapid Access Program enables high-impact experiments on biological structure determination at the CXI and MFX instruments through rolling proposal review and rapid scheduling.  Schedule constraints can impact Rapid Access throughout the LCLS schedule so please visit the details page or contact Mark Hunter (mhunter2@slac.stanford.edu) for additional information and guidance about available setups.


The format for Rapid Access proposals should be the same as for PCS proposals and can be submitted through the PCS proposal submission mechanism. In order to differentiate Rapid Access proposals, please indicate Rapid Access in the title or abstract of the proposal.


Submit new Rapid Access proposals


Rapid Access proposals are submitted separately from other LCLS proposals and there is a rolling review without any pre-defined due date. Please review the LCLS proposal preparation guidelines for further details.
