Solicitation for Proposals to Perform Nuclear Physics Research at the High Intensity Gamma Ray Source (HIγS) – 2021

Proposal Submission Deadline: August 9th, 2021

HIγS PAC Meeting Date: September 23-24, 2021

This is the regular call for proposals for nuclear-physics experiments at the High Intensity Gamma-ray Source (HIγS).  New proposals will be reviewed by the HIγS Program Advisory Committee (PAC) at their next meeting. The proposal submission deadline and date of the next HIγS PAC are given above.  Priority will be given to proposals that include TUNL collaborators. The agenda for the PAC meeting will be sent out by the end of August 2021.

We plan to operate HIγS for about 1300 hours per year for nuclear physics research. Experiments which are approved by the PAC in October will be placed in the run queue and may be scheduled for beam time as early as January 2022.  Beams with energies from about 2 MeV up to 110 MeV are available.
