On this page we have prepared several documents for you to download. They contain the information that you can find on this website as well as many additional details and a lot of technical background information. In case something is not clear to you in these documents: don't panic! There are many friendly people who will be happy to answer your questions.
The Beam and detector document is the most important one of all. It provides you with information about the beamline and details about the detectors that you can use for your experiment. In the Examples document you can find short descriptions of experiments that are possible with the beamline and material provided by us. Let yourself get inspired. The Invitation gives you all the details about how to participate in the competition in a single document. Please read also the terms and conditions that apply to all participants.
