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 ESUO have launched a questionnaire related to the absence of TNA funding
To all past, present and potential users of synchrotrons and FELs in Europe. With the end of the CALIPSOplus programme last October TransNational Access (TNA) funding to access synchrotron and FEL facilities, paying travel and accommodation costs for one or
more members on a beamtime, has finished and, at present, there is no direct replacement by the European Commission in the form of a general access programme that would continue to provide TNA to
all researchers from across Europe no matter the topic. In this regard, we ask you to complete
this questionnaire before the end of March. This is an initiative of ESUO, the European Synchrotron and FEL User Organisation in cooperation with LEAPS.

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.
