End of Run Survey

As part of an annual U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) report, the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) and other DOE facilities are required to collect feedback via a user satisfaction survey. This information is used by the Office of Basic Energy Sciences and by the NSLS-II to improve user services and the facility. Please complete the survey after each experiment.

Your name or institution are not required, but please provide your e-mail address so that we may contact you for clarification, if needed, and to inform you of a solution plan, where applicable. Copies of the survey will be distributed to appropriate NSLS-II staff so that they may help in addressing your concerns.

If you feel a particular question does not apply to you, please select the answer N/A. All questions must be answered in order to submit the survey.
