I am requesting initial training for the easyXAFS spectrometer. My advisor and I are aware that a new user fee of two hours of instrument time and two hours of staff time will be charged to my advisor. By agreeing to this user agreement, I certify that my advisor has approved my request for initial training and has agreed to pay the training fee. I also agree that all charges that will be a result of my instrument usage will be paid within 60 days of the date of invoice.
Being that the instrument is located at the Nuclear Science Center, prior to receiving access to the instrument, each user must complete the Radiation Training Courses 1-7, & 10 (https://rso.wsu.edu/wsu-radiation-safety-training/), in addition to the X-Ray Safety training module offered on myWSU (https://wsu.skillport.com/skillportfe/) . The certificates of completion or a screenshot of the completion date for each of these training courses will need to be attached below.
In applying for an account with the NSC User Facility I agree to abide by the rules and regulations (seen below) of the NSC User Facility.
Rules and Regulations:
The instrument will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for approved experiments to those users with access credentials. Experiments involving radioactive samples must be reviewed and approved in writing by NSC Management. Approval for all experiments are obtained by contacting the NSC User Facility staff prior to instrument use.
No food or drink is allowed within the NSC User Facility and safety glasses must be worn at all times.
All use of the easyXAFS will be acknowledged in future publications that utilize and discuss data that was acquired on the easyXAFS 300+. The following acknowledgement statement must be used: “We would like to acknowledge the Nuclear Science Center User Facility at Washington State University. The Nuclear Science Center User Facility equipment is supported by the Department of Energy and the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust (Grant #SR-202016425 ).”
