Submission of Proposals

Submission of Proposals
All spokespersons submitting a proposal for an experiment at HRIBF must fill out the following form. One purpose of this form is to make the HRIBF staff aware of any potential safety problems associated with your proposal should it be accepted by the PAC. You do not have to report materials which we normally supply in operation of the in-house experimental equipment.

Please remember that it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to arrange for the transport and/or disposal of all materials associated with your experiment. U.S. Department of Transportation regulations must be observed at all times. HRIBF will not store or dispose of any material unless arrangements are made prior to your arrival.

If your targets are backed, difficult to handle, beam dump required, or have any other special handling requirements, please explain below.


Research Equipment


Detailed information about the stations and some of their detector systems may be found by following individual links. You should select one endstation and however many detectors associated with your endstation as you need. Some detectors associated with a particular endstation may be adaptable to others.

If you are bringing with you detectors or equipment, please explain in the space provided at the end of the table.

You are strongly encouraged to contact the mentors of the device(s) you intend to use for your experiment.

Radiation Safety and Handling


Because we are a controlled facility, items that you bring with you to HRIBF (except office supplies and personal items unless they enter a radiological area) will have to be checked by health physics and green tagged before they leave the facility.

No, we do not plan to use a radioactive beam.
Yes, we do plan use a radioactive beam.

No, we do not require an "unusually high" beam intensity.
Yes, we do require an "unusually high" beam intensity.

No, we do not require a radioactive target.
Yes, we do require a radioactive target.

No, we do not require "unsealed" sources.
Yes, we do require "unsealed" sources.

No, we do not plan to ship or send any radioactive materials.
Yes, we do plan to ship or send radioactive materials.

Please describe any potential radiological hazards associated with your proposed experiment other than those normally associated with an HRIBF experiment.


Hazardous Materials Safety and Handling


Please remember that any hazardous materials you use or bring with you will require special training and/or handling. Some examples of hazardous materials which are regulated at ORNL are Pb and Sn, asbestos- (heater tape) and PCB- (oils) containing materials, and freon gas. Note that many targets, although composed of hazardous materials, are "articles" and are not treated as hazardous. If you need chemicals, intend to ship or send materials in a chemical form, or are unsure as to the nature of your equipment, please contact your local contact person or the scientific liaison officer (liaison@orph01.phy.ornl.gov).


No, we do not plan to send or ship chemicals or materials.
Yes, we do plan to send or ship chemicals or materials which may be considered hazardous.

Please list the potentially hazardous materials (including targets), their purpose, and the amount which you will ship.


Additional Safety Information


Please inform us of any compressed or dangerous gases you may be using in your experiment. You do not have to list any gases which we routinely supply such as dry nitrogen or isobutane for our detectors.

No, we do not plan to send or ship compressed gases.
Yes, we do plan to send or ship compressed gases.


Please list the compressed gases, their purpose, and the amount which you will ship.


Please inform us of any electrical hazards which may be present during your experiment. You do not have to list any hazards which are routinely present such as high voltage for the recoil separators or their associated detectors. If you are bringing equipment with you which requires high voltage, high currents, or may have a large amount of stored energy such as phototubes, please explain below.

No, we do not plan to bring in equipment which may present an electrical hazard.
Yes, we do plan to bring in equipment which may present an electrical hazard.


Please list the equipment and explain their purpose.


Previous Experiments


If you have experiments still on the books or completed experiments which have not been published, please describe the status and present plans to complete the project.

Upon submission, your information will be presented on your terminal. At the same time, HRIBF will receive the information and will expect to receive your proposal via email shortly.


Please review your selections and select the submit button if finished. You may print the finished document and attach it to your proposal if you have the appropriate software, or we will do it for you. Please send your proposal as an email attachment in portable document format (pdf) to grosscj@ornl.gov.
