Congratulations on getting your experiment approved and scheduled at the
88-Inch Cyclotron. This section details what you have to go through to
register with LBNL, obtain a dosimetry badge if necessary, and take any safety
courses needed to run at the Cyclotron.
4-6 Weeks Ahead
Set up a user agreement between your organization and LBNL, if there is
not already one in place. Recharge customers (those who pay for beam
time) must have a user agreement, purchase order, and an advance payment
check in place before beam can be delivered. For other users, a user
agreement should be in place between your organization and LBNL, but no
account is necessary.
1-3 Weeks Ahead
Register with the Administrative Services Office 2-3 weeks before coming
to the Cyclotron. All new users and guests, both U.S. and Non-U.S.
citizens, must begin the required registration process by completing the
Affiliate Registration Form (ARF Form). Other forms will need to be signed on arrival, or you can complete them ahead of time and bring them with you. The forms are available below under "Affiliate Forms."
Please notify the Administrative Services Office as soon as you are
aware of the date and time of your arrival and departure so that all
required documents and training will be ready for you. The
Administrative Services Office will arrange for a Laboratory Gate Pass
and Parking in the Cyclotron lot (if needed) when notified in advance of
arrival. Please enter Laboratory premises via the Blackberry Gate
entrance on Cyclotron Road. Gate security can provide directions to the
Cyclotron and a 1-day parking permit.
The Administrative Services Office is open weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. to process new users.
Please arrival at the 88-Inch Cyclotron during office hours. If you absolutely cannot arrive during normal working hours, you must alert the Administrative Office before hand. You will be given
safety training by the Control Room Operator on duty. You must complete all of the required forms and complete the 88-Inch Cyclotron building training before beginning work of any kind. The forms (available on our User Forms page) can be
completed prior to coming to the Cyclotron. You may submit any completed
forms via email to DJTrowbridge-Williams@lbl.gov. New
users and guests will need to return to the Administrative Services
Office the next working day to complete the registration process and
obtain access to the Cyclotron for the duration of your research or
