ISA is a Danish National Facility where research is carried out over a wide range of the natural and life sciences, including fundamental physics, material science, molecular biology and laboratory astrophysics, using accelerators and storage rings.
Access to ISA
- The call for ISA proposals for beam time in 2022 is closed. However if you are interested in applying for beam time on one of the ASTRID2 beam lines, then it may still be possible. Please read the information contained in the link below and contact the relevant beam line scientist to see if there is time available.
ISA welcomes applications, from national or international groups, for access to any of the ISA research facilities.
Apply for free-of-charge access to the AU-SRCD beam line through MOSBRI.
It is possible to apply for TNA through the EU H2020 programme MOSBRI. Proposals are accepted at any time through the MOSBRI website, but this is only applicable for access to the AU-SRCD facility at ASTRID2.
The second call for SME proposals is open from the 9th of September 2022 to the 28th of July 2023
SMEs can benefit from light source capabilities thanks to the European project LEAPS-INNOV, which is supporting industrial projects in an easy, agile and simple procedure.
LEAPS-INNOV is funding an access programme that is tailor-made for SMEs through a programme called "TamaTA-INNOV", for which SMEs can apply using a very simple form.

This LEAPS-INNOV webinar will be held for the second time on 3 November 2022, 11:00-12:00 CET.
The seminar will deal with the topic of Intellectual Property (IP) and will answer the following questions:
External professionals will be invited to give the training and to support the work of the technical work packages (WPs) in the project in dealing with the complex issue of IP and in working with industry. The workshop which is organized by LEAPS-INNOV WP8 (Industry) and DESY ITT is targeted to the technical teams in the WPs.
Further information and the registration form is available here.
The European project LEAPS-INNOV has an open call for proposals from SMEs.

In 2020 despite disruption due to the corona virus pandemic, ASTRID2 provided 28 weeks of user beam time to the 6 operational beam lines, with normal operation at 180 mA top-up. Machine physics studies are ongoing in order to improve stability and lifetime of the beam. The newest beam line, SGM4, has been commissioned and is awaiting the final installation and commissioning of the endstation.
For information about visiting the facility and how to arrange a tour, please read the information on this page.
