PHELIX Committee

The PHELIX Committee is an international program advisory committee of GSI. It gives advice to the GSI Directorate on selecting experiment proposals that are submitted by individual users or user groups in the field of plasmaphysics with ions and lasers. Following periodic calls for proposals, the PHELIX Committee meets approx. once every year; it evaluates the experiment proposals on the basis of scientific merit and technical feasibility, and makes recommendations on the amount of beam time to be allotted.

For information on submission of proposals see: Information for PHELIX users.

For information on beamtime planning and scheduling see: Beamtime Planning at PHELIX.

For information on remaining shifts of approved experiments a database can be searched. Entries are updated after each beam time block.

Call for Proposals

Presently, there is no open 'Call for Proposals'. As soon, as a new 'Call' will be announced, detailed information on it will be given on this webpage.
