Booking rules

After training, users will be given access to the online booking system. The booking rules must be followed.

Booking rules

After training, users will be given access to the online booking system. The booking rules must be followed.

  1. After the training, you will be given a username and a password to access the online booking system.
  2. Booking of the instrument before use is mandatory.
  3. Please consider you schedule carefully and plan accordingly before making a reservation. Do not book excessive time!
  4. Reserve the instrument preferably for maximum 4 hours a day, before or after lunch. Time-lapse experiments exceeding 4 hours should, if possible, be scheduled after 16:00 or in the weekend.
  5. Start the session punctually.
  6. Access is restricted to authorized users only! Persons who are not registered or trained are not allowed to operate the instrument, but may observe an experiment together with an authorized user.
  7. You are responsible for the instrument while booked, even if you do not use it!
  8. Cancel a reservation as early as possible, always earlier than 24 hours before your planned session.
  9. If you don't show up as planned, you will be charged for the entire unused reservation. It is your responsibility to check whether the equipment has been left on for you! This might be the case if you are booked as the last user of the day.
  10. If you finish early, check the booking calendar and notify the next user.
  11. If someone is booked after you, leave the system on only if you are sure this person will show up. Keep lasers in standby to prolong their lifetime. If you turn off the mercury or xenon lamp, write a note indicating the time you turned it off. All arc lamps must be kept on for 30 minutes and need to cool for 30 minutes before being reignited.
  12. If you are the last user of the day, switch off the system according to instructions given during training.
  13. Remember to fill in the logbook.
  14. When you reserve an instrument, you agree to abide by these rules.
