An Office of Science User Facility

2017 Publications

LCLS provides access to state-of-the-art instruments at no charge for scientists who conduct non-proprietary research, with the understanding that significant results are to be publicly disseminated. Inform the LCLS User Research Administration (URA) office when papers are accepted or about to be published.

Communicating research results with us in advance allows us to work with users, their home institutions and funding agencies to promote the latest LCLS science and to amplify media efforts through press releases and features. Please review the LCLS communications policies.

Progress Report: When submitting a new proposal, also upload a brief progress report summarizing proposal that have previously received LCLS beam time; include proposal number(s), date(s) of experiment, instrument(s) used, a brief summary of how experiment time was used and results disseminated (list major invited talks, papers published or in press, awards or special recognition).

NOTE: User publications are extremely important in demonstrating the scientific impact of LCLS. Proposal teams must inform and acknowledge LCLS and the DOE Office of Science in presentations and publications using this template:

"Use of the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, Office of Basic Energy Sciences under Contract No. DE-AC02-76SF00515."

To submit a paper for inclusion on this page, please visit the LCLS Publication Submission webpage.
