Only ONE Raman user can be booked at any time. Anyone who allows access to the building or gives access to an additional user will have all access to the building revoked.
Only those users who have already been pre-trained have access to the booking system.
Please find below the Raman system booking schedule link. When selecting your hourly slots please keep in mind that these include the arrival and setting up time as well as the time to complete your experiments before arrival of other users.
Only existing users of the Raman system will be granted access.
1. General laser safety training (contact Ken Scott, firstname.lastname@example.org).
2. Raman system operation.
Please remember to enter the values of the reference peak position (obtained from the internal standard) and intensity of the reference peak in counts per second (cps) into the booking system once you collected these data at the start of your experiment. This is important for monitoring system health and booking restrictions will be introduced should a user fail to enter this information.
Please also remember to include (upload) your experimental risk assessment at the time of booking.
Please keep in mind that the system start-up and shut-down are part of your booking time. Start-up, in particular, may require up to 25-30 minutes for stable system operation.
