To become a NEXUS user you must be a UK-based researcher at an institution eligible for research council funding. The first step is to download the NEXUS Terms and Conditions (link below). You should make sure appropriate Research Services or Contracts staff at your institution are aware of these Terms and Conditions, and that your institution accepts them. After you have confirmation that your institution accepts the NEXUS terms and conditions, download, print, fill-in and post to us a Project Registration Form.
The Project Registration form is important; this is how you specify to us the types of spectra and analyses of those spectra that you need for your project. It is the information used by NEXUS to schedule your work.
NEXUS will be happy to accept (with prior agreement via the Project Registration form) “dirty” samples, i.e. those that may lead to some contamination of instruments, subject to normal practice (e.g. scheduling these in advance of planned bake-outs, for example). We cannot accept radioactive specimens for analysis. All other hazardous materials must be subject to a risk assessment before you send them to us.
If you have any problems with these Terms and Conditions do contact us: we are very happy to consider changes or modifications users suggest to make them better.
