Details: Fees for Beamline Use for Proposal

Users are required to pay a beamtime fee (users of non-proprietary proposals are exempted from paying the beamtime fee) and user fees for consumable supplies calculated on the basis of the number of shifts. Users of non-proprietary grant-aided proposals are required to pay a program fee for priority use.

Examples of Fees

We do not support the issuance of advance quotations. If you need to calculate the amount in advance, please do so based on the calculation method below. The following are examples of fees required.
Detailed fees are summarized in the table.

Fee required when users use 10 liters of liquid He in 10 shifts for non-proprietary general proposal

10,720 yen × 10 shifts + 7,301 yen × 10 liters = 180,210 yen

Fee required when users use 10 liters of liquid He in 10 shifts for proprietary general proposal

480,000 yen × 10 shifts + 10,720 yen × 10 shifts + 7,301 yen × 10 liters = 4,980,210 yen
