Access to the Facility for UCSD users is provided through a recharge system. Two levels of access are available: (1) researchers may schedule and pay for daily use on demand. (2) Users with research programs that require regular and prolonged beam time may join the core user group by contributing a monthly flat fee that allows unlimited access.

For outside researchers and companies beam time and Facility support are available at competitive daily rates. Beam time may be purchased on a per-day basis or in discounted blocks of 3 days or more.

Current rates for non-affiliated users (walk-in): $1,500 per day.

To schedule access to the Facility and inquire about discounted rates, please contact the Facility Manager Nick Nguyen.


The Facility is located on the fifth floor of Urey Hall, room 5132, on the UCSD main campus at 9500 Gilman Drive, La Jolla, CA 92093. Click here for an interactive map, or scan the barcode on your smartphone.
