After Experiment

Report Submission

  • Beamtime Report
  • Experiment Summary Report
  • General Proposal (for industrial application): Industrial Application Proposal Report
  • Beamtime Report

    Please report to JASRI the amount of beamtime actually used the quantity of liquid He/He gas provided by JASRI for each visit with this form. Based on this report, the resulting user fee is determined.Please write your requests and suggestions for improvement, and advice to other users as well. As the general rule, these requests and feedbacks will be posted on the Beamtime Report (Request / Answer) Search.

    Experiment Summary Report

    Project leaders must prepare an experiment summary report (Form 26) summarizing the analytical results obtained from each experiment performed at SPring-8. Please log in to the UI site My Page and submit it online within 60 days after completion of the experiment. Please provide the report title, first author, co-authors, report body including purpose of the experiment and summary of the results (attach images), type of publication, journal title, and expected date of publication. If it is not clear when you publish your results, check the box for “Undecided Publication Date” and provide the reason and/or the tentative plan. Otherwise, the report may not be submitted.

    For instructions on how to fill out the online experiment summary report, click here.

    Two weeks after the report submission deadline for the last experiment of the term (60 days after the end of each half-year research term + two weeks), submitted experiment summary reports will be incorporated into the experiment summary report database with search capabilities and made available on the UI site.

    5. Experimental results

    Detailed Instruction: MSWORD:Nano_Report
    Format Guideline; PDF:F1-2T

    – Make sure to include research summary (purpose and background, experimental/analytical method, results/discussions, etc.)
    – The report should be clear and comprehensible to readers who are not experts in your field; include the significance and perspectives of research in the field.
    – All nonstandard abbreviations should be defined when first used. (e.g. PEEM: Photoelectron Emission Microscopy).
    – Figures and tables should be numbered separately (e.g. Fig. 1, Fig. 2, Table 1, Table 2, etc.) and have a short caption.
    – Illustrations (figures/tables) should be in bmp, gif, jpg, png, or tif format and inserted in the text where you believe they best fit.
    – Bibliographic information must be presented (where necessary) in the list of references.
    – All submitted reports will be compiled and published as achievements/results of the Industrial Application Program (Non-Proprietary).

When you receive a proof copy, please give it a final check.
    – The coordinator may advise you about correcting errata, or unconformity of the Format as necessary. Also, The coordinator may suggest you for correction about written expression for legibility.
    On the other hand, the coordinator will not advise you about the content of the report, because it is Non-Refereed.
