Notice: Change of Visit Type on Application Form for SPring-8 Facilities

Some instruments can be operated remotely in selected types of experiments. To simplify the registration procedures for radiation workers of such remote operators, the “Radiation Handler” procedure was initiated. In addition, it has become more common to contribute to experiments online through web conference systems nowadays.

Following the variation increase in the participation styles in experiments, the classification of users depending on the participation styles becomes important to manage user visits. Please fill out and submit the ”Application Form for SPring-8/SACLA Facilities” with the indication of participation styles for each participant before the experiment according to the following guide.

[Onsite (at SPring-8)]
On-site : Visiting the SPring-8/SACLA and participating in the experiment
*Normal visit procedure (submission of Form 5-1)

[No visit]
Remote Operation : Connecting remotely to operate experimental equipment.
* For remote experiments (remote control), a simplified procedure called “radiation handler” has been set up.
For details, please refer to “Application for Remote Experiment User“.
* Pre-registration is required to conduct remote experiments (teleoperation). Please contact the beamline scientists and check if your experiment applies to the remote experiments well in advance starting the registration procedure for radiation workers or submitting the Application Form.

Online : Connecting to web conference tools with “Visit” or “Remote Operation” users in the beam time (e.g. Teams, Google meet, Zoom), online data analysis, etc.

*If you plan to connect to the HPC for online data analysis, please contact the Beamline Scientist, and for form 10, please select “Visit”, “Remote Operation”, or “Online”, according to the type of participation.
